Pastor Brad Whipple

Senior Pastor

Brad and his wife Debbie currently lead Seaport, which they planted with the help of 7 people in March 1989. Brad’s deep passion for reaching people with the message of Jesus Christ has been the driving force behind his ministry for over 31 years. Whether it is supporting a missionary called to a foreign land, planting a church, reaching out to military men and women and their families or driving to Sturgis, South Dakota to minister to bikers, Pastor Brad’s heart is for people to find the healing promised in the Gospel.

PB (short for “Pastor Brad”) is also a sought after authority in church planting and ministry training. He was one of the first trainers for the Assemblies of God Church Planting Boot Camps, teaching planters how to start new churches. This equipping ministry has taken PB to many regions of the United States and around the world to places like Spain, Ghana, Venezuela, South Korea, China, Pakistan and India.

Brad is a graduate of Zion/Northpoint Bible College and Central Bible College. He has been ordained by the Assemblies of God for over 30 years. In his free time Brad loves to pray at Bluff Point and to ride motorcycles.

Brad and Debbie have been married for 42 years and love being near their daughter Lindsay, her husband Matt and grandson Felix.
