Brad was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida, and went to Samford University and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. His journey has taken him from Associate Minister of Recreation here at Dawson, to Minister of Recreation at FBC Dothan, Student Minister at FBC Pensacola, back at Dawson as Minister of Recreation, Discipleship Pastor, and now as Dawson's Executive Pastor. On this journey, Brad learned the true direction of a disciple of Jesus; to love God while loving others, and to equip Christians for the work of ministry to build up the church, the body of Christ. This is Brad's goal here at Dawson and in all things he does. He is married to Maile and father to two adorable daughters, Addison and Audrey. Brad enjoys coffee, reading, running, hiking, and spending time with his family.
