FPIW Action


Legislative Agenda

“We are tired of losing. In our lifetime, we’ve seen the destruction of our cities, our schools, and our families. We want our beloved state back. The living water of grace calls us to forgive and unite, and to bring God back into the public square. It’s time for the triumph of victory in Washington State.”


We believe that government has an obligation to protect life from conception to natural death. We advocate on issues of life ranging from abortion to adoption to human euthanasia.

We believe marriage is between one man and one woman, and that it is the optimum family arrangement for the rearing of children. We advocate for the preservation and promotion of natural marriage at the state and federal levels in order to address our social ills rather than an ever larger, more controlling government.

We believe that the right to worship freely, publicly, and at work is fundamental and. non-negotiable. We fight against unconstitutional restrictions on churches and ministries, to preserve the rights of churches and religious schools to hire as they see fit, and for Washingtonians to live out their faith freely.

We believe parents have the right to choose how to raise their children. From educational choice to vaccine exemptions, we oppose government efforts to force parents into decisions, with which they do not agree.

Born and raised in Kansas, Brad graduated with honors from Wichita State University in 1983 and went on to graduate magna cum laude from the University of Kansas in 1985. His work at FPIW focuses on lobbying efforts for Christian public policy, while also 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 individual rights, freedoms and Christian family values. He and his wife, Kelley, live in Olympia and have three children and three grandchildren.
