Brad came to Holy Trinity as interim rector in January 2020, after having served 2 parishes as assistant (Oregon & Alabama) and 2 as rector (both in Pennsylvania), and 6 previous parishes as interim pastor. He majored in Classical Antiquities (Univ. of Kansas) and obtained his M. Div. at Seabury-Western, Evanston, IL. He also did pre-seminary studies at Trinity College, Bristol, England, where Dr. J. I. Packer was his tutor.
Childhood experiences of note included singing in a professional Men and Boy’s Choir for almost 6 years. High school included high academics and less than high athletics (football and swimming).
Although a life-long churchman, God in grace restored him to faith in Nov. 1969 after 4 years of arrogant agnosticism. That belief was providentially confirmed by reading C. S. Lewis (a life-long passion) and a college bible study (ditto).
His wife Carol and he delight in 3 children (Kiersten, Sara, & Chris) and their ever-expanding family (Georgia and West Virginia).
Jimmy was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, with a couple of years each in Memphis, TN, and New Orleans, LA.

Jimmy is a graduate of the University of Mississippi (BA) and is retired having worked as civilian employee in the Comptroller Division at the United States Property & Fiscal Office for the Mississippi National Guard. He has been married to his wife Helen since 1978. They have a grown son Chris and daughter-in-law Beth.
