Alaska Conference is pleased to announce that Ashwin Somasundram has accepted the call to serve as vice president for administration.
Somasundram comes to Alaska with more than 20 years of experience in union, conference and university administration. His ministry accomplishments include service in the British Union Conference for Global Missions, leadership at both Newbold College and Andrews University, Texas Conference administration as well as mission work in Israel.
Somasundram completed a doctoral degree in ministry in 2014 with a focus on developing a model to empower the West Huston Church in multicultural and global ministry. He also holds a bachelor of arts in theology and a master's degree in ministry.
Impressive church growth, revitalizing declining schools and successfully guiding pastors in administrative leadership all point to Somasundram's spiritual gifts. He is passionate about equipping and mentoring others in cultural intelligence and self-care. Somasundram's experiences and talents will greatly bless Alaska leaders and members.
“I am so grateful God led us to Ashwin,” said Kevin Miller, Alaska Conference president. "I look forward to having him join our team here at Alaska Conference. I know he will be a blessing to our members and the mission we've been called to."
