About Me (and Others)

Hello! I’m Brad.

I serve as an ordained United Methodist pastor in the great state of Mississippi, serving Saint Luke UMC in the city of Cleveland, Mississippi, and Boyle UMC in Boyle, Mississippi. I’m a graduate of the Pacific School of Religion and the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California, having received both a Master of Divinity and a Master of Arts in Systematic Theology. My undergraduate alma mater is Millsaps College in Jackson, MS.

I am in the business of helping people to think compassionately and critically and to live in a more radically loving way. God wants us to be intimately in touch with the world, and we take risks to do so. I love inviting people into a process of spiritual formation, exploring contemplative prayer, scriptural immersion, and spiritual companionship.

Most fun of all, I love to hang out with my wife Kathleen and our daughter Edith.

A thousand thanks to good friend Jamie Michaels (visit her photography blog) for shooting these photos (many years ago now!) during our engagement.
