Under the new structure of decentralising resources to the regions, the following were appointed as Regional Mission Leaders: Paul Edlin (Wellington), Paul Askin (Canterbury-Westland), Derek Pyle (Otago-Southland), Brian Krum (Northern), Alan Hollis (Top of the South), Mike Walker ( Waikato), Peter Foster (Bay of Plenty).
These leaders will work closely with National Leader Craig Vernall as team leaders and coaches for their respective regions to help provide the best resources possible to each church. They are not superintendents, as under the old model.
