Bernie and Mark have taught seminars and spoken at churches and conferences across the world on leadership and relationships and are committed to healthy teams, churches and families – especially their own!
Bernie has been a part of C3 Church for over 35 years and along with Mark left Sydney, Australia in 1989 to plant the very first C3 Church in the USA in Long Island, New York. They lead this church for 9 years and built a growing and vibrant church before returning back at C3 Church Oxford Falls, Sydney where they started the School of Church Planting and also led as Executive Pastors at the Oxford Falls Campus, a church of several thousand people.
Bernie is an engaging and contemporary communicator with a wonderful gift for making men and women of all ages feel special, deeply loved and encourage to grow. Because of her great burden for unity in family and across the global church, Bernie is a sought after speaker teaching from decades of experience and encouraging people to take new ground in their lives and most importantly in their relationship with God.
Bernie is the mother of Josh (+Georgie), Amee (+Glen), Sasha (+Nathan), and “Nana Bear” to Selah, Brooks, Navy, Oak, Zeph and Clay. Bernie and Mark make their home in Avalon, on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney.
