Bernie Hartogbernie_susie

Bernie is a visionary leader/pastor who, with his wife Susie, accepted the call of God in 1982, & dedicated themselves together to plant, pioneer, establish, build a strong, Holy Spirit-filled, local church in Kingston, Tasmania.

In May 2015, with the home-grown leadership team, they successfully transitioned CityLight Church into a new generation of Leadership.  Having joined MFI when Kevin J Conner founded it in 1993, Kevin entrusted Bernie to lead and build a Team leadership to expand MFI across Australasia, assisting & encouraging pastors/church leaders out on their own or needing support.

Bernie is passionate about both edification & evangelism, being involved in encouraging, teaching & building up the church of the Lord Jesus Christ with the word of God, & in the presence & power of the Holy Spirit, seeing local churches flourish and multiplying, seeing the next generation of leaders equipped to rise up in their particular gifting to train and bring increase.
