Dr David McClintock has been appointed as the new Adventist education director for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the South Pacific (SPD).
The announcement comes after current SPD education director Dr Carol Tasker expressed a desire to transition into a part-time role. She will continue in the education department, serving as associate education director until September 2020.
Dr McClintock was most recently the principal of Avondale School in Cooranbong, New South Wales, a position he commenced at the start of 2017. He previously served as SPD associate education director, and has also been a conference and union education director and a curriculum writer for Adventist Schools Australia, as well as deputy of three schools and principal of six (five in Australia and one in Papua New Guinea). He holds a degree in theology as well as various degrees in education.
“Please pray for David and Carol as they enhance the disciple-making ministry within the vast SPD school system,” said SPD president Pastor Glenn Townend.
Dr McClintock will take up his role in early June.
