Pastors Brad and Mary Sullivan

In 1999, he graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Religious Studies from the University of Mobile, receiving the School of Religion Award upon graduation. He received his ministerial ordination in 2000 and was joined in marriage and ministry to his wife Mary in 2001. Mary received her degree in Supportive Role Ministries from Rhema Bible Training Institute in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Pastor Brad is a passionate preacher and insightful teacher of God’s Word. In addition to his pastoral ministry, he travels nationally and internationally encouraging pastors, strengthening churches and reaching the hurting with a message of hope and healing. Mary oversees Kids Zone Children’s Ministry and serves in various leadership capacities within the Church. Brad and Mary are the proud parents of two sons, Slade and Sidney. As a family, they are dedicated to faithful ministry in the Kingdom of God and seek to instill those principles in Slade and Sidney’s lives so that they will be equipped to carry on the mantle of ministry in the next generation.
