Hi, my name is Brad and I am a life-long resident of Marion, Il. I have been married to my wife Jennifer for over 25 years, and together we have three amazing kids — Briana, Branda & Justin. I grew up in church and surrendered my life to Christ at age 7. As a teenager, I began to examine my relationship with Christ because of doubts of accepting Him at an early age. During a youth church camp, I reaffirmed my faith in Christ. I have served primarily as a children’s leader throughout my ministry. On occasion, I have led youth and adult bible studies, and have had the privilege of bringing God’s Word to the congregation. My passions are spending time with my family, following my son’s bass fishing tournaments, Kentucky basketball and chocolate pie. I’m excited to see what God has planned for the Lake of Egypt area!
