Brad has been in Alaska since 1989. He and his wife, Bernadette have raised three children: Tyler, Tiffany and Seth. Coming to faith in God through Jesus Christ in October of 1990, both Brad and Bernadette opted to get out of the Air Force and remain in Alaska where they felt called by The Lord to serve. Brad has been serving in some level of ministry almost since the beginning of his walk with the Lord. Working in children's and youth ministry, prayer teams, as an overseer, preacher, teacher, counselor and even as an on-air personality/program director in Christian radio. The passion of Brad's heart is discipleship. Equipping others to be effective witnesses and minsters of the Gospel. The gift of mercy God has planted in Brad guides him in having a "shepherd's heart". Preaching the Gospel and encouraging others to live the life to which we are called by God is a driving force behind his zealous pursuit of being in a right relationship with God. Brad enjoys his faith, family, fishing and photography. "I am grateful to serve God in any capacity He chooses for me. I long to consistently reflect His grace, mercy, love and forgiveness to those whose path I cross."
