Meet the Education Team

Dr David McClintock

Director of Education

David grew up in PNG speaking Tok Pisin as his first language, and has worked in PNG, the Solomon Islands and Fiji as well as Australia. His passion is the Bible classroom having done both Theology and Secondary Education. He has been deputy of three schools and principal of six schools, three of which were boarding schools. He has been a Conference Education Director and a Union Mission Education Director, but has stepped back full-time into his real love – the classroom – several times.

David’s PhD is in Religious Education which is indicative of his passion to learn and inspire high school students in their own relationship with God. He is happiest interacting with students and loves being in a school setting.

David and Glenda have three grown children. Ken is a teacher with his wife being a counsellor/chaplain, Brad is a teacher and computer programmer and Katrina works in Pathology.

Mrs Alexandra Manners

Departmental Assistant

Hi, I’m Alex! I’m a Mum of a busy toddler and a kindergartener and part of a big extended family, I know how much joy (and craziness) children and school life can bring!

I love my hometown of Sydney and come from a background in healthcare and marketing and I just love helping people.

I am thankful for the privilege of being a part of the Education Team here at the South Pacific Division and assisting David and our unions and tertiary institutions to share Jesus’ love with students and the community.

I am in the office Mondays and Tuesdays.
