Board Members

CMS NSW & ACT

The Rev David Shead
Chairman of the Board, CMS NSW & ACT  |  Bachelor of Divinity, Master of Theology

David is the Senior Minister at Cambridge Park Anglican Church in Sydney’s West.

He grew up in a missionary family before himself serving as a CMS missionary in Slovenia from 1999 to 2007. He has been involved with ongoing personal prayer support of numerous CMS missionaries across Europe, Africa and Latin America for several years in addition to serving on General Committee, Parish Councils,  Constitution Review Sub-Committee and as School P&C President and Chair of a Committee to Constitute and Register New Churches in Slovenia.

He has been a deeply involved and knowledgeable member of the CMS NSW & ACT General Committee since 2009.

David brings a deep knowledge of CMS, theological insight and governance experience to his role as Chair and values your prayers as he commences his term as Chair.

The Rev Canon John Lovell
Executive Director, CMS NSW & ACT  |  Bachelor of Divinity (Hons), Bachelor of Economics, Master of Arts (Theology)

John has had a long association with CMS, including 10 years serving as a CMS missionary in Spain. John was the senior minister of a local Anglican church in Valencia where he developed a pattern of expository preaching and established several new ministries including Sunday school, a holiday children’s program, midweek Bible study groups and ongoing leadership training. God blessed these ministries and the church grew from a handful of people into a vibrant church community. John also enjoyed many opportunities to work with university students in Valencia, introducing them to Jesus and training them in leadership.

In his last few years in Valencia, John had an instrumental role in establishing MOCLAM Spain as a provider of accessible high quality theological education throughout Spain. As Regional Director, John helped this ministry to grow significantly and become a focus for future gospel ministry in Spain through CMS.

John is married to Jodi and they have six children, two of whom were born during their time in Spain.

“It is a tremendous privilege to serve as Executive Director of CMS NSW & ACT, supporting and encouraging missionaries, churches, and individuals in their different roles as together we actively participate in God’s mission and work towards the vision of a world that knows Jesus.”

Ian McFarlane
Deputy Chair of the Board, CMS NSW & ACT  |  Bachelor of Science (Hons), Doctor of Philosophy

Before retirement, Ian spent 31 years teaching and researching in the discipline of Biochemistry at the University of New South Wales, with extensive experience in undergraduate and post-graduate student supervision, academic counselling, and policy planning and implementation. He spent the final five of those years as Associate Dean of Science.

Ian became a Christian in his first year of high school and with that came his first exposure to CMS through the missionaries linked to his original church, St John’s Sutherland. Ian and his wife Lyn have been active members of St Aidan’s, Hurstville Grove for 40 years, and Ian has served the church family in a variety of roles including Bible study leader, Warden, Parish Councillor and Synod representative.

Since retirement, Ian has been a member of the NSW & ACT Branch Candidates Committee and General Committee. Ian and Lyn have enjoyed their regular attendance at Summer School since the early 1990s.

“I’m involved with CMS because of its vision for taking the gospel to the world and its commitment to the pastoral care of those who serve in the field.”

Brett Wheldon
Director & Treasurer, CMS NSW & ACT  |  Bachelor of Business, Master of Commerce, Graduate Diploma in Education Preliminary Theological Certificate, Chartered Accountant, Fellow CPA Australia

After working in various accounting and finance roles in industry and the profession, Brett had an academic career teaching in TAFE and University for almost 30 years. He retired as Senior Lecturer in Accounting at Western Sydney University in 2016.

Brett answered Christ’s call of salvation at the Billy Graham Crusade in Sydney in 1979. He has past experience serving on boards of Christian organisations and in various leadership roles in parish administration and discipleship. He has been married to Alison for over 40 years and has two daughters and six grandchildren. He attends Rouse Hill Anglican Church.

“It’s a privilege to be able to support the fellowship of CMS as a board member. I’m thankful to God for the opportunities provided to continue to use my gifts to help make Christ known throughout the world.”

Mandy Curley
Director, CMS NSW & ACT  |  Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Law, Bachelor of Divinity (Hons 2A), Masters of Arts (Theology)

Mandy is the Director of Membership at Christ Church Gladesville, where she has been part of the staff team since January 2019. Prior to studying at Moore Theological College, she worked as an Associate Tax Counsel at the ATO in Canberra, and was also involved in legislative design and development.

Mandy came to know Jesus through the SUFM team at Easts Beach Kiama. She has been involved with CMS since her time as a young adult at St Matt’s Wanniassa, attending local ACT missionary sessions and becoming a prayer supporter. She had often heard of “Summer School at Katoomba” but been unable to attend as it clashed with serving on Beach Mission. After her first CMS Summer School in January 2007 she has been a regular attender, having caught the vision for a world that knows Jesus.

“The work of CMS in training, equipping and sending missionaries, and supporting and caring for them is something I’m passionate about. I’ve been privileged to be able to prayerfully and financially support friends, and new friends, who have headed out to serve our gracious God. I love being a part of this fellowship and I’m keen to use the gifts I’ve been given for the benefit of CMS.”
