Our People – Profile

Dean Smyth

National Administrator
I started working with The Navigators in May 2023 as the National Administrator. I have a real passion to see the body of Christ and Christian organisations grow and mature – often by becoming better equipped and organised to make most of their potential. Prior to working with The Navigators, I was Executive Pastor of The Upper Room for seven years and served as both Operations Manager and Executive Pastor at The River Christian Church prior to that. I currently live in East Auckland with my wife Philippa and four growing boys who are excited about life, music, movies, and technology.
