Staffing changes and new employees to the editorial department of Adventist Media (AM) will help to improve the quality and efficiency of print publications and digital communications in the South Pacific Division.
Current Adventist Record editor Jarrod Stackelroth has been appointed Signs of the Times magazine editor, but will retain his role at Adventist Record.
Juliana Muniz has been appointed as a new, full-time assistant editor for Adventist Record, based at the Wahroonga office in Sydney. She will replace Linden Chuang, who held the role for nine years and will be teaching at Hills Adventist College this year.
“It has been wonderful working with Linden for all these years and we wish him well as he enters the ministry of teaching,” said Mr Stackelroth. “His presence will continue to be felt even though he has left our team, through the new Record template design and the website he has helped us run for many years.”
Mrs Muniz worked previously at West Parana Conference in Brazil where she was responsible for all institutional communications related to journalism, social media, press office, PR and crisis management, and also worked in television production for TV Novo Tempo (Brazillian Hope Channel).
“In 2019 I left my job to volunteer for the North New South Wales communications department where I did a little bit of everything: video editing, writing . . . produced podcasts, live-streams and a documentary to celebrate the centenary of the Conference,” she explains.
Mrs Muniz was baptised at eight years old and has been working for the Church since she graduated university in 2014.
“We are very excited to have such an experienced communications professional join our team,” said senior editor Jarrod Stackelroth. “I’m impressed by her passion for media ministry and know she will be a great asset to our team.”
