Brad:
I grew up in Chilliwack on a hobby farm. I was the middle child to a dad who was a school principal and a mom who was a Psychiatric nurse (suppertime conversation was always interesting!)

As a youngster, I was active in soccer, softball, 4-H and in my highschool years I was involved with Student Council. I worked in the produce department of a grocery store which helped support me through college and University.

I made a commitment to follow Jesus when I was 12 and stayed behind after Sunday School and prayed with my Teacher. At the time, I didn’t really “feel” any different, but as I look back, my attitudes toward others (especially those that were very different than me) changed since becoming a Christian. It seemed that I was less focused on myself and God was beginning to do an amazing work through me.

It was while I was at Simon Fraser University that I became involved with Athletes in Action Athletes In Action – a christian organization that worked with student athletes like me.

I was a walk-on placekicker on SFU's Football Team during the 1990 and 1991 seasons. It was when I was on a ministry trip to Moscow with AIA that I sensed the Lord urging me to consider full-time ministry. That was 14 years ago. Since that time I have been part of the Pastoral Team at Broadway church – which was also my home church growing up.

I have been married to Sheryl (she sat in front of me in a Fraser Valley College class) for 11 years and we have 2 wonderfully behaved boys – Caleb (8) and Benjamin (6). Both of our boys have physical diabilities and our family is very familiar with the route to BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver.

I am the assistant coach on Caleb’s soccer and softball team and he loves to run! Our family has experienced God’s blessings in very tangible ways and we love where we are in Chilliwack. As the Associate Pastor of Student Ministries, I’m modeling my life after some verses of Scripture found in Psalm 71: 17&18 – “Since my youth O God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds. Even when I am old and gray, Do not forsake me O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come."

Brad rides a Cannondale Road Warrior 800. The bike was heavily discounted from the folks at Cannondale and from Dan Douglas, owner of PedalSport in Chilliwack, B.C. Dan has been a tremendous supporter of Team Hagkull from the very beginning when we participated in our first duathlon!

The Road Warrior 800 is an aluminum frame with carbon-fiber Slice Ultra All-Condition forks. I opted for the flat-bar style of road bike as it seems to be easier to control with a “wiggly” partner in the back. Dan set us up with Blue Road Slick tires from the Clement company. At the recommended 125 lbs of pressure, there’s not a lot of contact between me and the road. They are amazing to coast on! It’s an XL bike with an FSA Alloy headset, Shimano WH-R550 Rims, hubs and spokes. The spokes are flattened or tapered for that extra advantage in wind resistance.
