Business Life -

Berni’s passion is sharing the Word of God with people around the globe.  But things weren’t always that way. A former officer in the Australian Army, Berni formed a successful Information Technology consulting firm with some of his military colleagues and over the next 17 years, he worked as a strategic IT and management consultant for over 250 organisations in Asia, Australia & New Zealand, Europe and North America.

He became involved as a ‘student volunteer’ in the media ministry of Christianityworks (then known as Back to the Bible) where he discovered that his gift as a communicator was to be used for the glory of God in the most unexpected way. Just a decade on, his radio programs were already being heard by a listening audience of over 30 million people each week through over 1,300 radio stations across 160 countries.

On Saturday 9 April, Archbishop Jeffery Driver announced his retirement from the Diocese of Adelaide. Archbishop Jeffery will formally lay down his staff on 19 August. His resignation comes with the recognition that the Diocese needs a new leader who can take it the next step on its journey.

Archbishop Jeffery has done a remarkable job dealing with the Diocese's sad and distressing legacy of abuse. He now looks forward to the opportunity of helping churches across Africa and Asia to grow and develop.
