Pastor Graeme Christian has been named president of the Victorian Conference, with Mr Graeme Moffitt appointed as the Conference’s chief financial officer (CFO).
I'm excited to lead the Victorian Conference as we move forward. Please pray for God’s work in Victoria.
The announcements come following the Conference’s constituency meeting at Seddon Adventist church on Sunday (September 22).

“I’ve been with the AUC for more than a decade—which has been truly great,” said Pastor Christian, who had been serving as the Union’s Ministerial Association secretary. “While I wasn’t looking for a change, I’m excited to lead the Victorian Conference as we move forward. Please pray for God’s work in Victoria.”
Former Conference president Pastor Wayne Stanley announced his retirement from the position in July.
Aside from his years at the AUC, Pastor Christian has been apart of church leadership teams in Greater Sydney, South New South Wales and Fiji, serving in a number of administrative roles as well as a local church pastor.
Mr Moffitt has spent the past eight years working as a financial officer for the Greater Sydney Conference (GSC), serving as CFO since 2010. He has worked in church finance since 1984, serving in a number of different church conferences and at South Pacific Division headquarters.

“After much prayer, consultation, and consideration, I felt God’s calling for me to serve in Victoria,” said Mr Moffitt. “The opportunities and challenges for the Conference are great, but I hold close to the text in Matthew 19:26 that says, ‘with man this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.’”
During last Sunday’s constituency meeting, it was also announced that Pastor Darren Croft would continue to serve as general secretary of the Victorian Conference—a role he has held since 2009.
