On February 11, 2017, the Maritime Conference board of directors, with the assistance of SDACC President Mark Johnson, elected Pastor Paul Llewellyn to be their new president. Llewellyn will succeed Pastor John Fournier, who has served as president of the Maritime Conference since 2010, and announced his retirement last year.
Elder Johnson affirms, “I am confident that [Pastor Llewellyn] will provide excellent leadership in this important region of our church.”
Pastor Llewellyn comes with many years of experience working for the Seventh-day Adventist church as a teacher and pastor. He has served as a teacher, camp director, and principal in Ontario and Ohio before moving to the Maritimes.
His most recent postings at the Maritime Conference have been as executive secretary, educational superintendent, youth director and camp director. A search is now underway to find a replacement for Llewellyn’s current duties. He will begin his new role as president on April 1, 2017.
