Sandwell Maimbo is our pastoral care enthusiast. He can see the need for rest, support raising, and other things member care people can see which others cannot see. We believe that as a small team doing a lot, we need someone else in addition to line leaders like Jonathan who can address some of the staff needs. Sandwell has also done DTS, IBCS, ABCS, and Basic Leadership Training School. His commitment is also non-specific but definitely long term. He is now serving as National Member Care representative on the NLT
