  • Brad Lauer

    Discipleship Pastor

    As Discipleship Pastor since 2008, I have a passion to create opportunities for people to come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior and/or fall deeper in love with Him.  Jennifer and I have been married since 1994 and have two incredible children, Madison and Micah.  When not spending time with family, playing golf, trying to play a little basketball or rooting on the UK Wildcats, I can be found doing something outdoors.  Psalm 46:1-2  are very dear to me, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.”
