Brad grew up in a tiny town in western Oklahoma where hunting and fishing was a way of life. However, Brad didn’t give his life to Christ until he was a sophomore in high school. The Lord called Brad into youth ministry and for the last 12 years Brad served in Oklahoma as a youth pastor. Brad used his love for the outdoors to minister to students as well as others. Brad founded Final Descent Outdoors as an outreach in his church. It grew from that into a national TV show that is in 40 million homes in North America. Brad and his wife April and three children Matthias, Ava, and Josiah have taken a step of faith and have decided to follow the Lord and pursue Final Descent Outdoors and outdoor ministry full time.
