As a fast-paced and driven Student Ministries Pastor, it makes sense that Brad's alternate career choice would be tornado chaser! But Brad's passion for people—especially students—makes Youth Ministry his perfect fit. Raised in a non-Christian home, Brad experienced radical transformation because of the influence of his youth group, and his heart was ignited to help students encounter Christ in that same way. In addition to Jesus, students, and storm-chasing, Brad enjoys chocolate chip cookies, filet mignon, sports, hunting, board games, video games, and good movies. He is married to his high school sweetheart, Kelsey, and he gets to be dad to their three children—Brenna, Westin, and Griffin.
