Bernard was elected to the Board at the 2012 AGM.

He went to EI Training School in 1982 and spent one of the most formative years of his life in Brasil in 1983 on a team in Passabem, lead by Fred Silva.

EI was ‘putting feet on the Gospel’ taking the good news to the poor and helping communities to improve their situation. He later returned to Brasil in 1991 for a further 7.5 years working with SAMS, working in churches in the South.

Since then, he has returned to Brasil with EI to help with short term summer teams. He is pleased to be involved in EI’s ministry on the Board and look forward to working with colleagues to help the Church help the poor.
