Collette is one of our board members, and brings her spiritual gifting in administration and giving to complement the gifts of our other board members. Collette has served as a worship leader, administrator, board member, nursery and missionette’s leader in other AG churches, but her absolute favorite place/role to serve is as the spiritual mom and prayer champion to the many youngsters who God has brought into her life over the years who do not currently have Christian parents, or who just need one more mom.
When God made it clear to Collette he was moving her family to the United States, it is fair to say her reaction was more in line with Jonah than Paul. But thankfully God is a gracious and forgiving Father, allowing her to relocate by plane rather than a big fish. God used that, and many other experiences during her time in America to grow a foundation of faith, love and service in Collette’s heart. She often describes her love of our Lord and her faith as being what her DNA has been re-formed into (and that would be the nurse in her talking).
Collette has been contentedly (ask her about that) married to her incredible and God given husband, Robin for 35 short years. She is also honored to be Mum to two talented children; Matthew – a man after God’s own heart and who you will occasionally see at Journey of Faith worshiping behind his bass guitar; Sebrina – a strong and sassy Proverbs woman, who God has called to use her gift for writing to reach the nations for Him. She is also preparing to become the best mother-in-love ever imagined to Samuel and Shannon, God’s choices for Matthew and Sebrina’s future spouses.
Despite her reluctance to move from England to America, God has been the God of the promise in Joshua 29:11 every day for her and her family, and is their Hope and Future.
