Prior to his current role in SummitTrek Brad launched and developed a thriving landscape business in Fort Worth, and helped plant Hope Baptist Church. Brad and Marty helped plant two more churches and launched a campus ministry in California.
In 1994 Brad served on staff with Rick Warren at Saddleback Church. Brad’s life and ministry were changed forever when introduced to Tom Paterson, a leading expert in strategic planning who had facilitated Rick Warren’s LifePlan. Tom introduced Brad to the Strategic LifePlanning process and later trained and mentored Brad.
Brad and Marty spent more than ten years, after Saddleback, as missionaries with Church Resource Ministries training coaches, coaching leaders and facilitating leadership groups. Brad was trained and mentored in the Focusing Leaders process which has been used with church leaders throughout the world. Brad also has extensive experience in designing leadership constructs.
Brad and Marty moved to Tulsa in September 2009 to start SummitTrek Executive Coaching. Tulsa is their home now, and they love their work, friends, and church, though they greatly miss their three young adult children and close friends in Southern California.
Brad has nineteen years of working with ministry and business leaders — starting at Saddleback Church, continuing as missionaries through Church Resource Ministries, and now as an executive coach with SummitTrek OK LLC. Brad has worked with thousands of leaders through coaching, facilitating leadership groups, training facilitators/coaches and leading intensive retreats.
Brad is a LifePlan and StrategicPlan facilitator, and is a Birkman consultant and EMyth Business Coach. For couples Brad developed the LegacyPlan Retreat, which helps couples draft a legacy statement and make commitments to finish well in their marriages.
