Pastor Brad Hales
For Pastor Brad, “It’s all about Jesus!”
Hales, a native of Delta, Ohio, has also served parishes in Maryland and Upstate New York. In his 24 years of ordained ministry, Pastor Brad has focused on renewing, redeveloping and starting new churches for growth and greater involvement in their communities. He can be seen outside the church on weekends waving to the passing cars.
Named the 2012 Culpeper Times Citizen of the Year, Hales also serves on the Culpeper Human Services Board and is the Dean of the Virginia Mission District of the North American Lutheran Church.
With a passion for God’s Word, outreach and senior adult ministry, Pastor Hales helped to start “The Place,” a daily “drop in” center for older adults in the Culpeper community. In 2009, Reformation Lutheran Church received the “Best Practices Award” in senior adult ministry by the National Council on Aging.
Known for his energy, joy, and enthusiastic attitude, Pastor Brad is married 25 years to Lisa, and they have two daughters Lydia and Abigail.
