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. Millsaps College in Jackson, MS is my undergraduate alma mater.
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.
Here is our lovely dog Laban, panting after some exercise in the backyard:
