Glenn

Co-leader/Bus Driver
Q. What are your interests/passions? 
A. I'm passionate about my relationship with God, my wife and two daughters, Football, Moto GP & Britsh superbikes, riding motorbikes and of course youth work!

Q. Something funny about you? 
A. Laughing at my own jokes? - Guilty! :-) 

Q. Why do you volunteer at Drop in?
A. I have done youth work for many years and have a real heart for reaching out to the most hard to reach young people in our communities. I truly refuse to believe that any of them are bad and see only the good in all of them. I aspire to simply be a positive role model offering them hope, encouraging them to unlock their potential, raising and exceeding the expectations set for them by others, just as I did!

Abby

Co-leader
Q. What are your interests/passions? 
A. I'm passionate about Jesus and getting my hands dirty out in the community. I love my husband and two beautiful girls. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, and watching the Moto GP. 

Q. Something funny about you? 
A.  Ask pretty much anyone.... I make a fool of myself enough!!!

Q. Why do you volunteer at Drop in?
A. I volunteer with Drop In because I love the young people in our community. I refuse to accept that this upcoming generation will be written off, or that anyone is too lost. 

I cannot accept the stats showing such a lack of hope. Drop In gives young people a place to go that they can be accepted for who they are and be real and safe. I love seeing the young people for they really are. I long to see a permanent change in our community for the better. 

Veronica

Co-leader
Q. What are your interests/passions? 
A. My first love will always be Jesus and I am passionate about serving him and others, especially young people and women. 
I love my 3 grown up children (+ many others who we consider part of our family), and love 'doing life' with our i:61 family on mission together. I also love the Bible, the beach, swimming in the sea, camping and coffee!

Q. Something funny about you? 
A. "Sometimes I pretend to be normal, then it gets boring and I go back to being me!"

Q. Why do you volunteer at Drop in?
A. I volunteer with Drop In to help provide a place that is safe, peaceful and fun for young people offering them someone to talk to and something to do. I am one of the oldest (always young at heart!) volunteers but still have lots of fun! I love mentoring young people, helping them to realise the treasure/potential within them. 

I also love to listen, chat and pray with the young people who often face huge challenges in their lives and circumstances. It is fulfilling to see young lives being changed by Hope. Love serving with our awesome team family too.
