Daniel G. Bernard - Producer
Daniel was born in Clearwater, Florida on July 4, 1956. In December of 1978, Daniel accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Shortly after getting saved, he went to Kentucky Christian College where he obtained his BA in Bible. He furthered his education by attending Cincinnati Bible Seminary for two years on a Leadership Scholarship. Daniel received several awards for Leadership and Preaching. He has earned an MA in Missiology from Liberty Theological Seminary. In September 2000, he was given an Honorary Doctorate of Theology from Tabernacle Bible College and Seminary in Tampa, Florida. His wife, Kathy, attended Florida Christian College and earned her Master's degree in Christian Education and Counseling at Cincinnati Bible Seminary.
While working on his Master's degree at Cincinnati Bible Seminary, he met and married Kathy. They have been married for thirty-two years. They have six children: Leah, Luke, Bethany, Faith, Peter, and Rachel. They have ministered in a variety of arenas. They pastored churches in Williamstown, KY, and Bryan, TX. While in Bryan, Full House Ministries, Inc. was established. Through this ministry, several outreaches were done, such as street ministry and short-term mission trips to Nigeria and Mexico.
In January of 1991, the Bernards left the U.S. to do mission work in Nigeria, West Africa. Their goal was to plant churches and develop a discipleship school. Although the Bernards left the mission field in 1996, the work continues with thirteen established churches. After ministering in Nigeria, the Bernards felt that God was leading them to Tampa Bay to work with the local churches. In December of 1996, Somebody Cares, Tampa Bay was established.
Somebody Cares Tampa Bay was established to unify and empower the Church across denominational and racial lines, utilizing all the key components that are needed to effectively reach and evangelize the Bay area for Christ. Somebody Cares has equipped and supplied the Church with resources through many projects and events. By combining resources, we have been able to do more together than apart and significantly increase our effectiveness in reaching the Bay area.
Daniel is the author of the following books: Praying Up a Storm, God's Soul Desire, The Church at its Best (formerly City Impact). He has also co-authored two books with his wife, Kathy: a book on marriage, Me Tarzan, You Jane! and a discipleship workbook based on the beatitudes, Attitudes in Action. He also was a contributor to 101 Ways to Reach Your Community and 101 Ways to Reach the Needy, by Steve Sjogren.
Daniel has been a guest on the 700 Club and the Christian Television Network.
