Wahroonga, New South Wales
Neale Schofield, CEO of Adventist Media, has asked for a leave of absence after seven years in the role.
Neale will be missed as, besides having great skills and experience in media, communication and marketing, he has a real passion to win people to Jesus and the last day message.
Mr Schofield is going to study Theology and the Arts in London. The South Pacific Division is recruiting a new CEO to replace him.
“Neale will be missed as, besides having great skills and experience in media, communication and marketing, he has a real passion to win people to Jesus and the last day message,” said Pastor Glenn Townend, president of the South Pacific Division.
During his time at Adventist Media, Mr Schofield oversaw the combining of a number of the media outlets that the Church runs in the South Pacific. He developed a clear strategy of ensuring Adventist media was “never more than an arm’s length away”—whether on a phone, computer, TV, radio or book.
Mr Schofield oversaw the production of the Beyond The Search series as well as the Tell The World film that will be released this year. He was also instrumental in establishing It Is Written Oceania and authored the Secrets of Prophecy Bible study series.
Mr Schofield is not only a leader and manager but also a skilled TV presenter. He developed and presented Masterstroke, a series on art and faith, and Dogtales, a lighthearted look at what we can learn about faith from his dog. Both of these series have shown on HopeChannel and can be viewed on demand at www.hopechannel.com/watch/shows.
