Reading: Fantasy. Animals: He loves all animals with four or fewer legs, but especially cats and dogs.  His favorite animal is the tiger and hopes to hold a tiger cub and pet an adult tiger one day.

Points Brad Wishes to Make:

"As a seven-year victim of bullying, my heart goes out especially to those who are treated unjustly and those who struggle to see God's presence in times of pain, and I believe God has called me to ministry particularly because of my experience with mistreatment.  I am a major advocate for social justice in all forms, and if there is anything I can do, let me know."

"I am a strong supporter of open-door-policy.  In other words, as long as my door is open, feel free to stop in for advice, 'shooting the breeze,' whatever.  If it's closed, it means I'm busy with other work."

"I am comfortable just being called 'Brad.' If you are avid about giving me a title, please use 'Pastor.'"

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


I thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and love for one another. We now have the privilege of joining together our gifts, talents and efforts in seeing the Garrett Presbyterian Church grow spirutally and numerically. 

God has led us together into a ministry of challenges and opportunities. We have the challenge of being a congregation of believers who love one another as Jesus Christ has loved the church. We have the opportunity to build up and encourage each other in the faith. We have the challenge to reach our young people who are bombarded with enormous peer pressure and temptations. We have the challenge of reaching out to those who have lost: loved ones, jobs, their marriages and an adequate support group.

The Good News is that as God calls us to these challenges and opportunities, God also equips us for them. Praying, working, laughing and striving together as a team will accomplish not only the fullfillment of these challenges, but the furthering of God's Kingdom right here in Garrett.

May God Bless us together as we strive to be a radiant and humble people of this community and follow God's call to new challenges and opportunities.

In God's Service,

The Session of the Garrett Presbyterian Church
