Connect Groups and Outreach Coordinator
Bernie came to know Jesus when he was in Year 9 and was challenged by his Dad to tell someone within the next 24hrs. Since then he has been telling others about the good news of Jesus. Bernie started teaching Scripture in 1983 at Jannali Boys High. He has continued to teach SRE, apart from a 10-year gap, where he studied a Bachelor of Theology, pastored one church and planted another. He has been teaching SRE at Ulladulla High School for 22 years. He joined the team at MUBC in 2017, in a part-time capacity, to head up the Connect Group ministry and more recently the Outreach ministry. His passion outside of sharing his faith is music, bike riding and surfing; of which he is spoilt for choice in Ulladulla! He is married to Michelle and they have 5 adult children between them.

Administration and Children and Families Coordinator
Michelle joined the MUBC team in 2016 as Doug’s PA, and quickly adapted to different responsibilities. She is committed to achieving order out of the chaos when it comes to Administration, but she is also passionate about the life changing message of Jesus for both children and families. She loves helping children come to understand their worth, discover their potential and grow into resilient, faithful followers of Christ. She also loves working with families, encouraging them to experience the love of Jesus in the family and the community. She is a qualified High School Science teacher as well as having a Certificate in Theology and currently studying a Diploma in Counselling. Michelle loves time with her family, gardening, camping and everything about the beach! She is married to Bernie.
