Brad Callaway, Min. of youth & education

Brad Callaway has been serving as the Youth Pastor and Min. of Education at Unity since 2006. Brad is Unity’s first full time Youth Pastor, and this is his first position in ministry! Prior to Unity, Brad served and helped with Unity's student ministry under the leadership of Kevin and Wanda Riddle.  Brad comes from a family who served many churches within the music ministry realm.  He grew up in the “church life.”  It wasn’t until April 6, 1993 that he realized he needed the saving grace of Jesus. That night he accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior.  In November of 1994, he surrendered to the call to ministry.

Brad is a graduate of Tri-State Bible College located in South Point, OH (BA). Before Tri-State, he attended Judson College in Elgin, IL for one year studying in their Youth Ministry program. He holds a degree in Bible and Theology, and a minor in Local Church Ministry.  Brad has also served on the board of the Ashland Area Youth Alliance and partnered with Youth Fest.

Brad and his awesome wife, Laura, have two amazing children and are residents of Ashland, KY.  Some of Brad’s interests and hobbies are the great outdoors-fishing, camping, hunting, boating, running, ANY sport, basketball, muscle cars/sports cars/ trucks, movies, gaming, spending time with family, serving the church, sharing the gospel, tinkering on things, t-shirt design/logo design.
