|Bradt, David, Connecticut District|
I have over 37 years experience pastoring. I have been a student of the Bible for 49 years and I have continuously taken courses to further my knowledge. I have taken Excell Bible School courses and Apostolic Leadership Bible training sponsored by the CT District.
My experience on the District level is as follows:
District Board Presbyter 3 years
Foreign Mission Director for district 2 years
My wife and I have a good and happy marriage of 45 years. Two wonderful children and their spouses and five grandchildren.
I received the Holy Ghost when I was 10 years old. My mother and 6 children came into the church after being witnessed to. My father never came into the church. We were faithful members of an Apostolic Pentecostal church always.
When I was 19 years old I attended Apostolic Bible Institute in St. Paul, Minnesota. I attended 3 years and graduated from there. I came home to Connecticut after leaving St. Paul. In 1964 I attended camp in East Berne, NY it was there that I met my husband David. After a very short engagement (3 months) we were married. It has been a wonderful marriage of 45 years.
In 1966 we started our first Home Missions church in Troy, NY. at the time I was pregnant for my second child and I had a small baby. God did a wonderful work in this city. After 7 years we left to start our second home missions church in Poughkeepsie, NY. God also did a great work here.
One note of interest God has blessed us to have our children and their families living close to us. My daughter and her family attend our church. My son and his family are close to us but they attend another Church.
