Pastor of Student Ministries - Joe Bradshaw

Joe Bradshaw was born for the first time a long time ago to wonderful parents and was raised on a family dairy farm in the North West corner of Pennsylvania. The summer after his senior year of high school he attended a summer camp run by the Christian and Missionary Alliance and on July 21, 1982 the Holy Spirit opened Joe's eyes to the truth about Christ and he was born a second time. Just six short weeks later he was enrolled as a freshman at Nyack College where he went on to earn a BA in Psychology. In the fall of that same year he began working with young people and has been working with young people ever since. He went on to earn a degree in secondary mathematics as well as a Masters of Education from Allegheny College and a Ph.D. in Theology from Trinity Theological Seminary.

The only things Joe loves more than serving as a youth pastor, while also teaching math and coaching various sports, are Jesus and his family. Any time you want some chocolate chip cookies just swing by his place. It only takes him about 5 minutes to whip up a batch.
