"I love the people and mission of ECMI and am excited to be part of this ministry."
Brad Pellish serves as Associate Pastor at Bethany Bible Church in Phoenix, Arizona. He also oversees the church’s global outreach initiatives, including the administration of twelve strategic partnerships.
In his nearly thirty years of pastoral ministry, Brad has also served churches in Ohio and Michigan, including Lead Pastor of Trinity Church (Alma, Michigan). He has visited thirty-five countries as part of his leadership of global outreach partnerships and short-term mission teams.
Brad believes deeply in purposeful, strategic, nationally-centric global partnerships as the aim of the Church in the twenty-first century. While he has appreciated experiences in all parts of the world, Europe is where he feels the greatest sense of connection and calling.
Another of his areas of calling is to lead a biblical response to sexual exploitation both inside and outside the church. In 2010, Brad launched a clean comedy event (freetolaugh.org) to resource the effort against commercial sexual exploitation in greater Phoenix and beyond. Approximately $525,000 has been raised through this initiative.
Brad has been married to Jennifer for thirty years. They have three adult children.
