Legislative Agenda

Brad Payne is the President of FPIW Action, which is FPIW’s 501(c)4 organization that directly impacts legislation, initiatives, and candidates. He began working for FPIW in December of 2021.

Born and raised in Kansas, Brad graduated with honors from Wichita State University in 1983 and the University of Kansas in 1985. His work at FPIW focuses on governmental affairs, public policy development, legislative lobbying, organizational regulatory compliance, management of our Strategic Partnership program and developing meaningful connections with state legislators and Christian organizational leaders across Washington.

Ordained as a pastor in 2020, Brad enjoys sharing the gospel and testifying to the transforming power of Jesus Christ. He has led several ministry efforts in the Olympia area, including ministering to the area’s homeless population; serving as a board member at City Link Ministries; teaching at Set Free, an organization that ministers to recovering addicts; and providing pastoral care at Capital Medical Center.

Brad is determined to see Washington state change course for the better protecting of individual rights, freedoms and Christian family values. He and his wife, Kelley, live in Olympia and have three children and four grandchildren.
