Brad Jury, Senior Pastor
When Brad was five he crossed the line of faith by believing upon Jesus Christ. While preparing for pastoral ministry Brad met Jennifer, eventually forming a ministry team through marriage. In 1999, they began serving God together in churches in Rochester, N.H., Denver, Co., and Indianapolis, In. In 2009, the Lord called Brad to Providence Church where he began serving as Senior Pastor. The Lord has blessed Brad & Jennifer with four children: Kyle (18), Carter (15), Kassia (13) and Cana, (8). Brad’s desire is to see Providence Church expand its impact for the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a needy community while deepening their love for Christ through Word-centered Christ-exalting Grace-driven ministry. Brad’s community impact includes serving as Secondary Bible Teacher at Northside Christian School and Chaplain at Westerville Area Resource Ministry.

David Reed, Deacon
David was born and raised in Johnstown, Pennsylvania and frequently attended the church where his parents were members. Without a clear presentation of the Gospel, David had no understanding of who Jesus was or the price He paid for our redemption. David finished high school and was off to college, but it wasn’t until after college that God opened David’s spiritual eyes through the testimony of a co-worker. With the simple declaration, “Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for your sins,” David experienced an instantaneous spiritual transformation that answered the question he had once asked himself as a teen in church, “Who is this who bled and died?” At that moment, he remembers the spirit within him saying, “I agree!” Not long afterward he met his future wife, Andrea, who was a Christian, and they were later married and began their walk together in the Lord which ultimately led to becoming members of Providence Church. David and Andrea have two grown children, Jordan and Kristin.
Steve Black, Deacon
Steve was born in Pennsylvania, the youngest of 5. He grew up in a Bible-believing church and Christian school. At a young age, Steve placed his trust in God receiving God’s gracious pardon for his sins and the righteousness of Christ. Steve moved to Columbus to graduate with a Bachelor Degree in Technology. Soon after arriving in Columbus, Steve heard about Providence Church. Because of the depth and passion of the preaching and teaching of the Scriptures, he was drawn to partner with Providence Church striving to show others the Gospel grace that God has given him.
