Brad loves people and wants to serve God by building them up with the Word, but he confesses that he gets really annoyed by people who hold up the line at Dunkin Donuts by ordering anything but hot black coffee. He may also get annoyed by people who insist on passing him on the road only to turn off a short distance ahead.
Following God's call on his life to the University of Valley Forge, he met his darling wife, Stefanie. They have two adult children, Ethan & Emma. Brad spent 18 years in youth & music ministry and for the past 9 years he and Stefanie have pastored Connect Church in Alum Bank, PA.
Brad knows there is only one real sport: Motocross. Everything else is just "water polo."
