Brendan and Kristy have a vision to bring God and people together.
Their desire is to see people living lives beyond themselves for Christ. It brings Brendan and Kristy great joy to equip and encourage others to step into all God has for them. Both love the local church in all of its expressions, and consider it a privilege to partner with Jesus in building His church. They are excited about all God has in store for C3 Church Thirroul, and honour the foundation He has built through the faithful service of those who have gone before them.
On a more personal note…
they officially met each other while serving in our Youth ministry, dated for a few years, fell in love and have been married since 2002. They have 3 beautiful girls and a dog named Elroy. Brendan’s other great love is sport and he thanks God often for his beloved Wests Tigers and Cincinnati Bengals- noting that only God could orchestrate a calendar that sees the NRL finish just as the NFL starts! He also enjoys reading Monocle magazine, drinking good strong coffee and cooking. Kristy loves swimming laps in the local pool, watching movies (yes mainly Rom-Coms) and drinking quality tea. They love their church family and the team they lead.
