Brad grew up right here in the Wichita area and has lived in the area most of his life. He grew up in a Presbyterian Church in east Wichita and took the opportunity to ask Christ into his life with the help of his 6th Grade Sunday School teacher. Throughout his Junior High and High School years he was very involved in youth programs including leading a small group that met every Sunday afternoon. He was proud of being one of a couple of youth who had keys to the church doors so that they could get in to meet.
Brad is a graduate of Wichita State University with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and one of his claims to “fame” is that he was the WuShock – the WSU Mascot for 3 years while in college. While at WSU, Brad met Lisa and they married in July of 1988. They have one adult daughter, Bailey, and two pembroke welsh corgis, Riley & Duncan.
Brad worked in Alumni Relations for over 16 years and was the Executive Director at the WSU Alumni Association when he answered the call to vocational ministry and became Associate Pastor/Youth and Christian Education in August of 2004. Prior to that he was involved in various ministry roles at PBC, where he and Lisa have been members since 1998.
Brad loves rooting for the Shockers anytime he can and enjoys watching college sports – though his favorite hobby/sport is golf when he gets a chance to get out there. “Something about hitting a little white ball and chasing it around the course is relaxing…most of the time.” His favorite food was pizza (before working in youth ministry) but now it is "any home-cooked meal prepared by his wife."
“My goal in life is to bring Christ to those who need him and to help people grow daily in their relationships with Him” – Romans 10:14-15 (Brad’s version)
