Brian grew up in London, England and joined the Royal Air Force at the
age of 16 and served for 15 years, rising to the rank of Flight
Lieutenant. Brian served in anti-terrorist roles and was invalided out
of the RAF Regiment having been blown up by a terrorist's bomb in
Northern Ireland. He spent the next three years profoundly deaf and
with the shrapnel in his legs causing pain as he walked. Prayed for by
a group of Christians his hearing was restored and the pain taken from
his legs. God's healing power has meant that Brian is again able to
function normally. He did his theological training and functioned as a
parish minister in rural and city environments. His present ministry is
now focusing on restoring New Testament Christianity to the body of
Christ. In the past 18 months Brian ministered throughout New Zealand

One of Australia's toughest, most respected policemen, is a 'hands-on'
law enforcer. His familiar profile on the streets has led people to
call him the 'Sheriff of Cabramatta.' He was a success, becoming part
of an elite Police Rescue team that most only dream about joining. He
felt superior and proud and didn't need God. He had years of Christian
teaching at Sunday school, but never any commitment. One day he
realised that his life was in a mess and even contemplated suicide,
ironically he was a 'suicide negotiator,' . His marriage was destroyed
and he was drinking heavily. But at the point of desperation, he met
Jesus, his maker and his life was miraculously transformed.
