Brad Deestcreek, the lead pastor of family ministries at Grace Church of Greater Akron: Bath Campus, has been named director of The National Institute for the Development of Ministries to Youth (TNI). TNI is offered at Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana, and run by CE National.
Brad’s desire is that students know and follow Christ and that Christ uses them to change their world. He’s excited to be able to carry out that desire at both Grace Church and through the TNI program by influencing the next generation of youth workers.
Brad is married to an incredible woman, mom, and artist, named Tara. They have four boys, Finn, Sullivan, Killian, and Sawyer.
