Dr Alex Currie has been appointed the CEO of International Children’s Care Australia (ICCA).
Dr Currie brings a wealth of experience ranging from pastor, evangelist, missionary, theologian, educator, administrator and counsellor. His most recent role has been as a chaplain at Sydney Adventist Hospital (the San).
According to his biography on the San website: “Though formally retired, Pastor Alex Currie is defying all stereotypes by pushing on with as much gusto as he did before retirement.”
Prior to his chaplaincy role, Dr Currie was assistant to the South Pacific Division president. He then spent more than 10 years in the Greater Sydney Conference, holding roles such as pastor of Kellyville and Thornleigh churches.
Dr Currie visited an ICCA project last year. He said, “I have seen the work that ICC Australia does. What I love is that it is doing the kind of work that Jesus did when He was here. I’m very excited to be part of a frontline ministry and look forward to the challenges that this brings.”
ICCA has been without a CEO and run by a management team for the past two years (consisting of Kate Brown, Jane Gibson, Colin Clark and Rob Alaburton) but this arrangement was always going to be short term. According to Mr Clark, the board is currently restructuring and Dr Currie’s appointment is part of that process. Dr Currie will take up his new role in July.
ICCA is an accredited supporting ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Its mission is to “build a brighter future for destitute children”. Visit ICCA’s website at www.iccaustralia.org.
