Last night we lost our father, our brother, our friend, and our pastor. The heart of City Church and the Bradley family is heavy and hurting right now, but through it all we trust God. We thank you for your prayers and concerns for us at this very difficult time. We ask that you give the Bradly family privacy and prayer; and we will have more information forthcoming. We love you all
The 51-year-old pastor and his wife Nicole had started City Church in 1998 in the living room of their home.
As the ministry grew, the Bradleys moved their church into a building and continued to expand the congregation.
Those who knew Bradley shared messages on social media, explaining that his death is difficult to comprehend.
