Whatever happened to that old Aussie term of "mateship"? Do we even understand the term Covenant Friendship or "Mateship" anymore? Not mere friends, pals or acquaintances - but genuine true friends, true blue mates!


The Bible has a lot to say about real friendship or real 'mates', a friend that sticks closer than a brother. It's a great blessing to have a real 'mate', people who have been with you through all of life's ebbs and flows, someone who is there for you in good times and bad. During your lifetime you will have hundreds of acquaintances, BUT VERY FEW TRUE FRIENDS! Few friends are true friends.

During his life in the Northern Territory Col was awarded the Mariner Fishing Writer of the Year award (Australia) (1979), won a Swedish Gold Medal for a world record shark capture, and was featured in an outdoor documentary film for Australian and American television. Col also successfully hosted his own outdoor and fishing TV program and has written 10 books on fishing, hunting and wildlife.

The Stringers minister with a powerful anointing and are in great demand to speak at churches and conventions in many parts of the globe. Col's unique background of wildlife and humour have won for him the title of "Pastor Crocodile Dundee". He is also a very successful author of 20 Christian books, with total sales of 300,000. Two of his books 800 Horsemen and Fighting McKenzie were voted number 12 and 29 in the Australian Broadcasting Commission's 100 All-time favourite books, beating such books War and Peace, Wuthering Heights and even one of the Harry Potter books, the only Christian books (except the Bible) in the top 100.
