Stevie Wills is a young woman with a passion. In 2011, she travelled with CBM to South Africa and Zambia to meet with people with disabilities. Stevie has qualifications in counselling and is also a performance poet, writer and public speaker. She was born with cerebral palsy, and has had faith and a relationship with Jesus Christ since she was 14.
Stevie uses her performance poetry and writing to communicate the cycle of poverty and disability. She has spoken in front of thousands of people with her powerful words of inclusion for people with disabilities. Stevie is on the CBM Australia staff as a Community Education Officer.
Rob is the Church Engagement Lead at CBM Australia. Part of his work is networking and training for the Luke14 initiative. Rob worked in leadership roles in community services for 30 years, including with Wesley Mission Melbourne, before moving to a combination of working in the church as a pastor and in a training and coaching consultancy. He took up the role at CBM in 2010 to follow his two passions of the church and people who are often outsiders, including people with disabilities. He lives with his wife and cat and loves being a father, father-in-law and grandfather.
