Lindy has been involved with dance and drama most of her life. Her mother was an ice skater who “danced on ice”. She enrolled Lindy in dance school at the age of three on Malta, the island Paul was shipwrecked on in one of his journeys. Her father was in the Royal Navy and the family had several relocations in Malta, Australia, and England. As an adult, Lindy was amazed when she found a picture she drew as a very young child - it was a ballerina and a church.
After formal training, Lindy founded dance schools in England and served as a choreographer, lecturer, and teacher to professional and regional companies. She has taught in schools and universities in England and the USA. Lindy has served as an administrator on regional arts groups, and she has served on advisory panels to the Community in Northern England. Lindy has been amazed by what God has done with this training and experience when she turned it over to Him.
Lindy is qualified in many styles of dance including ballet, modern, historical dance, national dance, movement and music, tap, ballroom, dance, drama, and dance history. She has worked with children, youth, and adults, both amateur and professional.
Lindy attended an International Christian Dance Conference in 1994 where she saw Christian dance for the first time, men and women worshiping God with their whole being. She had a life changing experience. Lindy began training in Christian dance courses to expand her understanding of the healing grace available to us through worship.
In 1996, Danny’s work took them to America where doors opened for further training in Christian leadership. Lindy overcame many fears and she feels her deepening relationship with Jesus through prayer and study equipped her for her future work for the Lord. In 2001, Lindy was licensed as a minister in the Foursquare Church.
In March 2000 Lindy went on her first mission trip with a small group where she began to understand God’s heart for the lost. She began to travel nationally and abroad in response to invitations to minister at conferences, workshops, schools, and churches and is still continuing with this work.
The other aspect of God’s call came into view with the beginning of the “GO” ministry journeys as the Lord started pinpointing countries and sending Lindy and Danny into over 30 nations. Lindy now has a strong call to preach and teach the Gospel wherever the Holy Spirit leads, and encourage Christians to worship God more freely and intimately.
God in abundance pour down on me,
God in abundance fill me ‘till I’m free,
Free to go anywhere that You have planned
Touching the hearts of man, holding their hands.
Showing your Christ’s face with love and with joy
Calling back love from man woman girl boy.
Building a world how You ‘dained it to be
Returning love to You, joyous, complete.
