Brad comes to us from a little bit of everywhere. Although his family moved across the country five times while growing up, he’ll tell you that Florida and Illinois feel most like home.
Brad earned a Bachelor’s of Music from Belmont University and a master’s from Moody Theological Seminary. A “little birdie” told us that Brad was just a couple of classes shy of earning a minor in dance! (It’s never too late to finish that up, Brad!)
Brad has been in ministry leading worship for ten years. At Fox Valley, he plans and oversees our worship services, the prayer ministry, and our Men’s and Women’s Ministries. He leads a life group, helps with pastoral care, and helps lead Replanted, a ministry caring for foster and adoptive families. In his free time, Brad enjoys spending time with friends, working out, dancing, going on family walks, watching TV, playing video games, reading, and cheering on the Florida Gators.
With his growing family, one may wonder how much free time Brad actually has. Brad and Emily have three young children–a biological son named Elijah and two adopted children, Amari and Julissa.
Despite his busy home and work life, Brad will always make time for counseling and pastoral care. He’s passionate about leading worship and loves engaging in meaningful conversations.
