Gospel Communications is a non-profit Incorporated Association and as such is governed by a board.
Our current board members are:
Duncan Rintoul (Chairman) – Belongs to Austinmer Anglican, and has been in home group with Wendy for a few years, and used to be a Warden on Parish Council there. Main ministry at the moment is with primary school boys. Dunc sits on a couple of other Boards as well, and run his own business in social research and evaluation as well as part way through a doctorate in that area
Angela Hobbs (Treasurer) – from Heathcote Engadine Baptist, helps run the women’s ministry there, which is how Wendy met her. It’s been great for Wendy to be able to bounce ideas off Ange in terms of approaching and working with churches in the area. Ange’s day job is in customer care for a big financial services outfit in Sydney – JP Morgan. So if you end up having a financial relationship with Gospel Comms, Ange will be your main contact on that.
Andrew Wade – also from Austinmer Anglican, has a big role in setting the tone of the evening service there, he and his wife run a biblestudy group for young adults which is bursting at the seams. Among other things, Wadey is a numbers man – maths and finance – and has worked hard with others on setting up a budget for GC.
Suzanne Watts – long-time collaborator with Wendy in women’s ministry at Austinmer – they have enjoyed a long history of putting together creative evangelistic women’s nights. Her day job is at Life Without Barriers, an NGO that specialises in disability, foster care and various other community services. Among other things, Suzanne has a passion for gastronomy, and loves cooking up a storm for all her grown up family.
The board meets quarterly and functions in an advisory and support capacity as well as overseeing the financial and administrative aspects of the association, in order to free Wendy up for evangelistic work.
We report to the NSW Fair Trade Association as well as the ACNC (Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commision). Our constitution is available as are our financial records. Our financial reports are prepared independently by Sheddon Green & Associates.
