I, together with my wife Donna, have been a Salvation Army Officer (pastor) since 1999 and leading at North Brisbane Church since 2012. Coming from a family of tradesmen, I'm a practical guy that loves working with my hands and living life shoulder-to-shoulder with other men. As a husband, father and follower of Jesus, I am continually looking to how I can be a better leader and I love that my family continually cheer me on in this.
I love my family and dog Buster. I have always felt drawn to help build healthy churches and so have been involved in church leadership for over 20 years. I am passionate about developing leaders and teams. In my spare time, you'll find me running, reading and exploring new places but never drinking coffee.
Hi my name is Brett and I am married with five kids with one more on the way. I used to be an atheist but God had a different plan and a great sense of humour. In 2013 I became a Christian and He called me to serve Him which has led me here to NBC. I work here full-time with our youth and young adults (ages 12 -30) and encourage, strengthen, and raise them up to become the young men and women God has created them to be. I probably haven't grown up either which is why I love ministering in this capacity. I have completed a Bachelor of Theology and Diploma of Ministry to equip me to share the liberating Gospel of Jesus. I love reading the Bible, theology, Marvel, pop culture, riding my bicyles, video games and chilling with wife and kids and friends.
Hi! I'm Karyn. When I'm not doing things at church, you will find me drinking coffee with friends or doing trivia quizzes, sudokus or crosswords (I'm learning how to do cryptic crosswords for a new challenge!). I am passionate about helping people understand God's word and my dream is to see NBC as a church full of disciples making disciples, impacting the world for God. I am almost finished a Masters of Divinity, and am currently writing my minor thesis. What's next? God hasn't told me yet... but I have a suspicion there's more study involved!
My friends and family mean a lot to me, and I'm also a massive dog lover. My job is my mission field and I love serving God in this way. The people I work with are pretty awesome too! I volunteer at my church and help facilitate English conversation classes and have met some amazing people. I owe who I am today to Jesus, who died and rose for me that I might live for Him. I trust you can see Him through me when you meet me. I love my friends, riding my scooter, hanging out at the beach, and watching sci-fi and action movies.
