He completed his high-schooling in Sydney, an Arts degree at the University of New South Wales (1997), a PhD (Political Science) at the University of New England (2003), and a Bachelor of Theology at Moore Theological College (2007). In that time, he also worked at St Mark’s Chapel (UNE), on shearing teams and properties in the New England, in politics, and, after theological training, back on farms on the Liverpool Plains.

In 2010, he was ordained and took up an Assistant Vicar’s position in Wee Waa. Just after Easter 2012, he was inducted as Vicar of Wee Waa Anglican Church and remained there until moving to Narrabri in January 2019. In this time, he has served on the Diocesan Commission for Education and Discipleship, and as a member of Diocesan Council.

Bernard is married to Anita and they have four children. In his spare time, he tries to keep running, read books and he definitely enjoys his family and being outside.
