REV. DR. RENEE TREWICK
Renee Trewick made history when she was elected as the first Black woman to serve on the Southern Baptist Convention Board of Trustees and the first Black woman to serve as chair of any global agency for the 175-year-old organization.
Trewick is based in New York City and attends Bronx Baptist Church, a Southern Baptist Convention congregation. A graduate of Pace University with an MBA, she heads risk management as a vice president at Marsh USA. She has been with the firm for more than 30 years.
But beyond her corporate work, Trewick has been deeply engaged in church work serving with Mustard Seed Community and has chaired the finance committee for Metropolitan New York Baptist Association. She is also the director of stewardship at her church.
Ms. Renee Trewick is now the chair of the board of trustees for GuideStone, the financial arm of the Southern Baptist Convention. GuideStone directs and provides various aspects of financial support to more than 250,000 pastors, denominational workers and employees of the organization, dealing with retirement, real estate, investments and insurance.
