Second Wind Board

Mr Bob Harvey(Chairman)
A teacher by profession, Bob worked in Latin America for 30 years in evangelism, church planting and mobilization of the Brazilian church into global missions. This ministry took him to other Latin American countries where he had the privilege of working alongside many emerging national missionary agencies and seeing an upsurge of interest and enthusiasm to take the Gospel to the whole world. Bob and his wife, Bev are active members of the Browns Plains Presbyterian Church and accompany with great interest the on-going developments in Latin America.

 

Mr Lindsay Fell (Joint National Director)
Lindsay worked as the Administration/Finance Manager of a large, internationally renowned University research centre prior to resigning in 2004. As a result of service with YWAM in the early 80s, followed by a number of short-term mission trips, he has always retained an on-going desire for active involvement in missions. As a result of being challenged to become a “missions advocate”, he has worked with Barbara to establish Second Wind Network. He strongly believes that God wants to use his administrative skills and heart for missions to provide an avenue for Second Wind people to get involved in mission.

Mrs Barbara Fell (Joint National Director)
Barbara’s interest in missions began as a teenager in her local church. As a university student she travelled in South East Asia and God used that to ignite an interest in other cultures and people groups. She subsequently participated in a number of Short Term Teams in Asia and the Pacific with YWAM and through her local church. As a university administrator she worked with international students. She is now using her administration skills in Second Wind Network and is also a facilitator for the Kairos Course. Together with Lindsay she believes that people in the 40+ age group are a dynamic force for missions.

Lindsay and Barbara attend New Heart Baptist Church (Rochedale) in Brisbane.


Mrs Linda Page

Linda has been a primary school teacher in various states in Australia over the last 30 years. She has combined this with bringing up a family, teaching RE, serving on a Christian School Board, and being involved with refugee and migrant services. After completing a missions awareness course in preparation for a visit to Asia with her church, she resigned her position as a primary schoolteacher, and undertook further study in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) in order to be able to work with migrants and refugees in Australia as well as students overseas who need to learn English. This led to involvement in an education project in a slum area of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, training the teachers for this project, which focuses on “street children”. A few years later, she went to Cambodia for a longer period, to assist a project which trains girls rescued from trafficking in cake decorating and hospitality. Linda wrote the English program specific to the needs of these students, in order that they can be employed in other cafes and restaurants. She is now running a study centre and homework club in an area of Brisbane where there are many students from refugee backgrounds.
