Pastor Brad is exactly who he sounds like, a Christian Pastor named Brad. He is the lead pastor at First Christian Church in Cookeville, TN.
Brad is also a gifted, 80s style, Christian metal artist. Growing up in the era of "Hair Metal" & "The Guitar Hero," Brad couldn’t help but pick up a guitar and start rocking.
In 1987 he became a follower of Jesus Christ--a decision that reshaped his life--and continues to do so to this day.
In 2004 he launched GuitarJams.Net (now pastorbradrocks.net) as a platform for sharing his music and Bible teaching with the world.
To date, Brad has had the honor of releasing more than one-hundred fifty Christ-exalting songs worldwide.
He's been blessed to work with several of his heroes from the classic days of Christian metal! Richard Lynch and Dee Harrington of SAINT (RESHREDDED (2006), Les Carlsen of Bloodgood (BREAK OUT, 2010), and Ken Tamplin (BREAK OUT 2010).
"If KISS, AC/DC, Judas Priest, Ozzy and Iron Maiden jumped into a Christian blender and came out playing Christian music--that's pretty much what you get with Pastor Brad."
