Leadership and Management at Barney's
The following outlines the leadership and management teams and structures at Barney’s Anglican Church. Barney’s was replanted in 2010 and since then has been growing as a church that seeks to engage in mission and discipleship. As the ministry has evolved, so have the leadership structures, moving towards teams of people who share leadership and management responsibilities in a number of different areas.
Rev. Andy and Liz Goodacre
Andy and Liz were appointed to lead Barney’s by the previous Bishop of Tasmania, John Harrower, in 2010. As the church has been re-planted and started to grow again they have been excited to see others step up to join them in listening to God and leading the Barney’s community.
Ministry Equippers Team
Our ministry equippers team is made up of leaders from within our Barney’s community who all give sacrificially and voluntarily of their time (at least a day a week) to encourage and equip many within our community to grow as disciples and missionary leaders. Many of our ministry equippers lead missional communities and huddles, which help us all to be God’s missionary people, seeing lives transformed. Below are the current members of the ministry equippers team.
Mission Support Team
The mission support team work alongside Andy to oversee important practical and logistical aspects of our life together, including overseeing finances, building and equipment and compliance issues (such as insurance, health and safety etc.) Current members of the Mission Support Team are: Andy Goodacre, Gabi Dunn, Michael Valk, Stefan Wagner, Thomas Macqueen, Josh Brooks.
All key leaders within our Barney’s community are committed to being part of a huddle, where they can process together what God is saying to them personally, and make themselves accountable to following him obediently.
All leaders within our community are also committed to adhering to the Diocese of Tasmania Safe Church Communities and Faithfulness in Service guidelines, in order to make our community a safe place for all people and to promote integrity in leadership. This includes undertaking regular Safe Church Communities Training and holding a current Working With Vulnerable People card. To read more about this, please visit our Safe Church Communities page.
