Pastor Felix Wadrobert has been named president of the New Caledonia Mission, making him the first New Caledonian to serve in the role.
. . . I have a dream to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ continuing to spread over the whole territory of New Caledonia. The people here must hear His word and prepare for His coming.
The announcement was made following the New Zealand Pacific Union Conference’s (NZPUC) mid-year meetings at its headquarters in Howick, New Zealand, in May.
“While I am in this position as a servant, I have a dream to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ continuing to spread over the whole territory of New Caledonia,” said Pastor Wadrobert. “The people here must hear His word and prepare for His coming.”

Pastor Wadrobert has served the New Caledonia Mission for more than 30 years as a church pastor, youth director and administrator. The NZPUC Executive Committee voted unanimously for his appointment as president.
“Pastor Felix is a humble, calm and friendly pastor who is well respected by both church members and the community, ” said NZPUC secretary treasurer Graeme Drinkall. “We wish God’s blessings to Pastor Felix as he takes up this new role.”
Pastor Wadrobert will continue to serve as general secretary of the New Caledonia Mission, and pastor of Bethanie Adventist Church, until the end of the year. The NZPUC executive committee also appointed retired pastor Claude Couty as Pastor Wadrobert’s assistant for the remainder of 2013.
Pastor Wadrobert and his wife, Jeannette, have four children, Audrey, Sébastien, Rudy and Aenaelle.
