He sensed a call and had a desire to plant a gospel-centered church since 2007, and the Lord provided the opportunity to plant Redeemer Church in 2015. He is a 2004 graduate of Boyce College and has an on-again/off-again relationship with his Mdiv pursuits at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Brad is husband to Starla and daddy to their five children. They currently live in downtown Jeffersonville.
