TEACHING PASTOR-ELDER

Brad preaches regularly at our Sunday church gatherings, oversees Missional Communities and Restored Kids, and is responsible for developing preachers and teachers. He spends time shepherding, studying, and meeting with people in and outside of Restored Church.

1. What do you do for fun?
I am a big fan of going out to eat with my wife and friends. I enjoy going to the park with my kids and hanging out with my neighbors, but I am also quite a nerd and prefer to spend the majority of my "fun" time reading theology, philosophy, or history.

2. What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about preaching the Gospel to both Christians and non-Christians who have a skewed view of what Christianity is all about – Jesus and His grace. I also love equipping people to share the Gospel in everyday conversations at work, home, and in their neighborhoods.

3. What is something that most people don't know about you?
My right ear has a double earlobe... Yes, it is very cool. No, I did not have an earring torn out during a fight.

4. Everyone should read...
Mere Christianity - C.S. Lewis (For a firmer grasp on the Christian faith.)
Every Good Endeavor - Tim Keller (How faith and the workplace go hand in hand.)
The Cross of Christ - John Stott (For a deep read on the beauty of the cross.)
The Stories We Tell - Mike Cosper (How movies and TV shows echo the Gospel truths.)

5. What excites you about Restored Church?
Being in a community of like-minded people who are passionate about making much of Jesus and seeing people come to know Him. It is why my family moved down here and it is why I have the greatest job on earth.
