We are delighted to announce the appointment of Pr. Ben Timothy as the new President of the North New Zealand Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

The Conference Appointments Committee met on Thursday, 26 July 2018, and a process of selection was put in place. Our sincere thanks for the many prayers offered throughout the Conference, and the wider Church, during this time. God has answered, and our support for Pr. Ben Timothy, as he takes up this leadership role in North New Zealand, will be a blessing for him.

Pr. Ben is currently the Secretary of the North New Zealand Conference and has served in this role since 2010. He was the Conference’s Administrative Pastor from 2005-2010, and prior to this, had been a Conference Pastor since 1993. Pr. Ben is married to Noeline, who is currently a teacher at Balmoral SDA School, and together they have raised 2 sons Andre and Benji who have blessed them with 7 beautiful grandchildren.

We welcome Pr. Ben and his family to this new role, and pray that he will feel God’s strength mightily as he leads the Spirit filled vision for Healthy Adventist Communities in North New Zealand.
