Matthew Brown has been appointed the new secretary of the Trans Pacific Union Mission (TPUM).
The role was vacated by Pastor Bob Larsen who left the TPUM last year after taking on the position of North New Zealand Conference president.
Mr Brown previously held the associate CFO role and this is his third year working at the Union office.
TPUM president Pastor Maveni Kaufononga said Mr Brown has been overseeing the secretariat function since Pastor Larsen’s departure.
“He has performed really well looking after this area and is working well with our team here at the Union and with the mission secretaries,” Pastor Kaufononga said. “He is very quick to learn.
“Please keep Matthew in your prayers as he settles into his new role.”
Mr Brown, an Australian, is married to Bernice and they have two children.
