Recently, the Lake Union Conference welcomed two new members to the office family.
Floyd Brock serves as assistant to the president for special projects and is the construction manager for the new Lake Union Conference headquarters in Berrien Springs, Mich.
"We are grateful God led Floyd to join the Lake Union office staff. With his strong track record in the Wisconsin conference overseeing several major building projects, his experience will be essential in the office project," stated Don Livesay, president, Lake Union Conference. The administration is still finalizing details with the Michigan Department of Transportation, so construction may be delayed until Spring 2012.
Brock worked in the Wisconsin Conference for 22 years where he most recently served as men's ministries coordinator, community services coordinator and property manager for the Wisconsin Conference. Brock was project coordinator for the new conference office and two student dorms at Wisconsin Academy. He was also involved in the building of Pioneer Pavilion and Fireside Lodge at Camp Wakonda. During this time, he helped in the maintenance department at Wisconsin Academy.
Brock's family includes his wife, Joanne, four grown children and 12 grandchildren.
Ben Freeman joined the Information Systems team in a part-time capacity as PC support specialist. His responsibilities will include fixing computer problems for office staff and upgrading hardware or software on their computers.
Before joining the Union staff, Freeman spent six years teaching GED and ABE (Adult Basic Education) education classes.
Freeman's family includes his wife, Erin; son, Christopher; and daughter, Graci.
