Laynette Rustin ~ Financial Administrator

One of my life verses is Isaiah 25:1, “O Lord, you are my God, I will exalt and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago.” God has pointed me to this verse through good times and not so good times. Most recently, though, I have claimed this verse as I see how He moves our congregation to financial stewardship. I count it a privilege not only be a member of Church of the Apostles but to also serve as the Financial Administrator.

In 1991, I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a Master of Accounting degree and a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. John and I were married in the summer of 1991. I worked in a large accounting firm for three years before serving as Chief Financial Officer for a startup company. In many ways God used this experience to fully prepare me for my current responsibilities at Church of the Apostles.

In 1998, God called me to set accounting work aside as He expanded our family. John, our daughter, Amelia and son Jordan started attending Apostles in November 2001.  Over the years, I have been  actively involved with Children’s Sunday School, Kids’ Time and Greeters teams. I am a Bible Study Fellowship graduate and have served in the past as a BSF Discussion Group leader.

When I’m not “counting beans” at Apostles, you can find me watching Tar Heel basketball, volunteering at Broughton High School, cooking or walking our dog Jacob.
