He is also a regular lecturer at the NACBA’s annual Church Business Administrator Certification Seminar. Verne has also written articles for various ministry publications including the NACBA Ledger and Church Business Magazine.
A native of Arlington, Verne has been with the firm for 30 years. He started his accounting career with a Dallas firm, but jumped at the chance to come home when the opportunity arose at PSK.
