Bishop Julius C. Trimble is pleased to announce the selection of David Robinson to serve as the Chief Financial Officer and Director of Administration for the Indiana Conference of The United Methodist Church effective December 1, 2021. He is following Ian Hall, Director of Finance and Administration, who transitioned from his role earlier this year.

We are excited about what David brings to our leadership team and the ways he will be adding to the ministry of the Conference,” said Trimble. “We are fortunate to gain his longstanding administrative experience in the Church combined with his value for the importance of relationships and strategic planning.” 

David boasts extensive experience in finance spanning over 30 years. He has experience in both the not-for-profit sector as well as public service. From 2010 to 2020, David served as the Chief Financial Officer for the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio. He previously worked as a school treasurer and finance director.

David currently serves on the Board for Cinfed Federal Credit Union and Church Investment Group. Previously, he has served on the Board at St. Augustine University, The Health Care Connection, and Delta Gamma Lambda Foundation.

“This is a great opportunity. I am excited to join the Indiana Conference and again work in the ministry and mission of the Church to further God’s kingdom on earth,” said David.

David and his wife, Amy, have 3 daughters: Madison, Kennedy, and Raegan. The Robinsons currently live in Sharonville, Ohio.
