Brian & Annette Bernays

The Bernays’ have been in ministry since the early 80’s when they were involved in pioneering a ministry to Rodeo cowboys on the professional circuit in Australia.

BA_8911_smBrian became a Christian while on the rodeo circuit in the USA in 1980. He grew up on rural stations (ranches) around horses, cattle, sheep and tractors. He has worked in the mining industry, as a horse breaker, farrier, welder, station hand etc. Brian rode bulls for 11 years including 2 years in the USA. He loves to see people equipped and strengthened in their walk with Christ and in their ability to reach out to the community.

Annette grew up in North Queensland: Townsville and Mt Isa. She became a Christian in Mt Isa in 1981. Annette has qualifications and experience in office administration, child care and early childhood development.  She has been working alongside Brian in the Christian ministry, with a strong call to nurture and raise up disciples in wholeness and maturity. She has a passion to raise up the next generation of worship leaders. She also honours her call as a mum to her family. They have five terrific children and five grandchildren.

Annette is also our Prayer Pastor.

Brian and Annette are in Tamworth as a result of a strong call from God. They are very excited about the future of Tamworth and C3 Church Tamworth.
