Joel Bradshaw

Care Pastor

My Motivation

I find great joy by providing encouragement and comfort. Also, I love leading smaller groups to grow through times of biblical study and discussion.

My Background

Before coming to The Bridge I was the Senior Pastor of Prospect Christian Church. When the churches merged in the fall of 2015, my wife Jennifer and I moved to Des Plaines with our son Joshua. Since then, we have added beautiful baby Julia to our family.

My Spiritual Journey

When I was 5 years old, I remember praying with my mother to accept Jesus as my Savior. My parents continue to have a great impact. I have been blessed with dear friends, Christian mentors, and a godly wife, who have helped shape me as a man and mold me as a pastor.

One More Thing

I have visited 5 of the 7 world continents.
