Staff & Leadership
Born in 1950, Brad grew up in South Seattle, attending Midway Covenant Church. When he was eight, he gave his life to the Lord Jesus at Covenant Beach. Brad and Ruth met at Seattle Pacific College, married, and upon graduation went to serve as missionaries in the Democratic Republic of Congo for 19 years. They have two daughters, Rachel and Rebecca, who grew up there. Brad received his Masters of Divinity from North Park and later a Doctor of Missiology from Western in Portland. Brad has also received a certification in intentional ministry from The Interim Ministry Network. He has served seven churches either as lead pastor or as transitional interim in Washington and Chicago areas. Hobbies and interests include running, hiking, Scuba (well not so much recently…), reading and writing. Brad has several books on Kindle that range from theological to humorous. Well, at least he thinks they are.

Stephanie has been the Office Manager at Cedarcreek since 2015 and is passionate about being open and obedient to whatever path God wants her to walk. She loves coming beside staff, leaders and congregants and helping them with "all those little details" so that they can focus on the big details. She is married to David, and has two children, Kaitlyn and Isaiah. When she isn't involved in their activities or in the office you might find her walking, crocheting, reading, scrapbooking or serving our church and community in other ways.
