Pastor Brad, Kristin, and family

Brad was born in a small town in the Canadian Rockies. Kristin was born in West Michigan. By God's grace they were both brought up in Christian homes. Brad and Kristin have been married for almost 14 years and together they have 4 children: December, Isaac, Reuben and Violet. They share a common commitment to Jesus, His Church, and His mission.

Brad has degrees from Kuyper College and Westminster Seminary California. Brad is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and has over 8 years of full-time pastoral experience. For the past 5 years Brad has been the pastor of Woodgreen Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Calgary, Alberta. By God's grace, Brad's ministry at Woodgreen has been a ministry of revitalization. Today Woodgreen is a vibrant and growing church. Though sad to leave Woodgreen, Brad is excited to take on this new challenge in Vista, California, because he believes God is calling him to use his gifts and experiences to help Grace Covenant Church in Vista replant into a vibrant and missional church to reach their community.
