Brad has served in pastoral ministry for over 20 years. After 13 years serving in the same congregation, he and his wife Mandy, began to sense that the Lord was leading them in a new direction. Through much prayer and Godly counsel, the Lord led them to Washington, Brad's hometown, to plant a church. Both Brad and Mandy, along with their youngest daughter, have moved to Washington to plant a church that makes disciples of Jesus, and partners with others to see his Kingdom grow. They also have two older children, twins, who still live in western NC.
