Brad started volunteering with the youth program prior to the church’s introduction of Journey to Adulthood.  He has served on the Youth Leadership Committee which was instrumental in hiring two youth directors as well as once associate rector.  In the more recent years, Brad has served on the Vestry and as Junior Warden. As a Vestry member Brad served on the Buildings and Grounds and Stewardship Committees. The Junior Warden's role gave Brad the opportunity to help oversee the management of the grounds and the facilities of St John’s 13+ acre campus. Currently in the 3rd year of this role, some of Brad’s major accomplishments are the overseeing of capital projects with funds from the Capital Campaign, instituting the church and school green initiatives, and the successful hiring of a professional facilities manager.  In addition, Brad oversaw the quick restoration of the campus after several major storm events plagued our area, and co chairs the biannual campus clean up that hosts over 70 participants. Brad serves as chair of Buildings and Grounds, is an active member of the Day School board, and serves on the Stewardship Committee.  Professionally Brad is employed in the forest products industry.
