When he’s not in the pulpit, Brad enjoys hiking in the White Mountains, baking bread, and riding his Harley. He calls Kittery Point home along with his wife Linda (who is also a pastor), son Nate, and their high-spirited mostly-Lab named Lola. You might also find him enjoying a local craft brew or bite to eat at one of Kittery's many excellent restaurants.
