The administration team at the South Pacific Division (SPD) has welcomed a new member with the appointment of Eva Ing as associate officer.
The appointment—approved by the Division Executive Committee last week—is effective immediately. Mrs Ing will report to SPD secretary Pastor Mike Sikuri while also providing support to SPD president Pastor Glenn Townend and CFO Francois Keet.
The appointment of Mrs Ing will help to fill the gap created by the loss of two key personnel in 2022—Jane Gibson-Opetaia (former secretariat services manager) was appointed secretary of the Trans Pacific Union Mission, and Kalvin Dever (formerly programs and strategic projects director) was seconded to Avondale University as director of advancement.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to have Mrs Ing join us,” Pastor Sikuri said. “I believe her vast experience, knowledge, skills, network and wisdom will add great value to our administrative team. Her appointment is an answer to prayer. I look forward to our journey together.”
For the past two years Mrs Ing has been serving at the SPD as director of technology operations and strategy. Before that she was the CFO at the Greater Sydney Conference for more than seven years.
“I feel humbled and honoured to be asked to be part of the officer team and am looking forward to the challenge,” Mrs Ing said. “With God everything is possible!”
