Guess Goose Gadsden wishes he was included with the 'big boys'?
Bruce Hales: the Elect Vessel of the Exclusive Brethren church and leader of over 40,000 followers worldwide, he constantly receives cash and property donations from followers. He has control over a vast network of properties and also looms over the 800 Brethren businesses spread across Australasia and the world.
Stephen Joyce: a high profile member of the Exclusive Brethren and a director of UBT, the Brethren's Universal Business System which offers such services as coaching and computers (with connection only to the internet through the Brethren's own portal). All of the UBT directors are well off and Joyce owns businesses such as Jaybro, Orange Hire and Cambridge Graphics. Stephen is also the grandson of William Leslie Joyce who owned Mastercraft Chocolates before selling it in January 1961 Lifesavers for a tidy sum. Stephen was born on December 31, 1961 and is very clever, having also worked hard for what he has. WL Joyce was killed in a 1984 car accident and his successors remain divided based on their involvement with the Brethren.
