What to Expect
Humor, energy, thoughtful lyrics, and real life conversations. Brad presents a program that somehow reaches all ages and is fun for the whole family. However, he also has the ability to speak to specific groups and needs through music and lyrics. He feels as comfortable with a small youth group as he does on a stage singing to thousands. His hope is always to be authentic and transparent as he inspires others and shares God's love.
