Tamavua, Fiji Islands
The Trans-Pacific Union Mission (TPUM) has announced the appointments of new administrators in a number of South Pacific missions.
The SPD Executive Committee will meet in early May to consider the appointment of a new president for the TPUM.
Pastor Luke Narabe, Pastor George Fafale and Pastor Nos Terry were appointed presidents of Fiji, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu respectively. Pastors Narabe and Terry had been serving most recently as departmental directors in the TPUM, and Pastor Fafale had been serving as a departmental director in the Solomon Islands Mission.
In Fiji, Pastor Tiko Kabu was announced as general secretary and Vic Bonetti was appointed chief financial officer.
The changes were made following the TPUM’s recent mid-term review of each of the local missions within its territory.
On March 27, the South Pacific Division (SPD) also announced the retirement of Pastor Waisea Vuniwa. Pastor Vuniwa had been serving as president of the TPUM since 2008. The SPD Executive Committee will meet in early May to consider the appointment of a new president for the TPUM.
General secretary, Pastor Wayne Boehm, will serve as acting president in the interim. He has asked for church members throughout the South Pacific Division to pray for the leadership teams in the TPUM and its local missions as they continue to work through a period of transition.
