“Wendy has an obvious love for the Lord and a love for people, when you speak with her you can see both are true. She understands Aussie culture, and can communicate the life changing gospel clearly and lovingly. I’ve recently had the privilege of working with her in a gospel event she coordinated. It was a brilliant night with the right planning, vibe, follow-up, many guests attending and bathed in prayer. I’ve also come in contact with people who have come to know Jesus through her work at Austinmer, & Thirroul. I’d encourage any interested Christian groups to grab the opportunity to work with Wendy telling people the good news of Jesus.”

I’ve known Wendy for just on 20 years through thick and thin and have always admired her drive, resilience, and especially her ability to relate Christian faith with ‘real life’. Wendy speaks with confidence, clarity and courage out of a deep humility and a wisdom that her life is in bigger hands than hers. I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a person with such a connection with her local community who’s much loved by them all.

I have met Wendy off and on for about 20 years.
Most recently she organised and co-ordinated a quite brilliant series of meetings right on the beach for her local church. She showed outstanding clarity of purpose, creativity without being either corny or weird. It was one of the most positive contexts I have had to proclaim Jesus to non-church goers. She is a Christian of deep integrity and experience. She knows what it is to suffer and to continue to trust God and to serve Him. Her family is a joy to be with and a credit to her and Shaun her husband.
Ian Powell – City Bible Forum
Wendy is a great communicator of the gospel. She speaks out of her own deep and active relationship with Jesus. Her own experiences of life enable her to connect effectively with the real concerns of anyone she is speaking with. I’ve enjoyed the chance to work with Wendy on a number of evangelistic events and have always been encouraged by her enthusiasm and attention to detail driven by her desire for Jesus be made known.
Graham Stanton – previous Principal Youthworks College
It is always a privilege to have Wendy speak to our women at CCBC. Her warm, relational, caring and engaging personality means she connects and genuinely relates to all ages, and walks of life. Her message from the Bible was relevant, personal, encouraging and challenging, and the message of Jesus shines through her words and her life. We look forward to partnering with Wendy again.

Feedback from a church member to their church…..
‘What a great job last night. You and the team created an opportunity and an atmosphere conducive to positive response: the decorations, the food, the waiters, the musical items and the strong message. The whole event made an incredible impact on my friend. Last night was the perfect place for someone exploring the faith to connect with a church community and take it to the next level. Wendy was inspirational and gave my friend books to read and the ladies from my home group had the chance to meet herand invite her along. Thanks again for your efforts.
