Pastor Brad Dokken
What do you like to do in your spare time? I'm eclectic in my interests and can normally be found doing something that involves people. I like being involved in community theater, watching sports - especially baseball and football , catching the latest movie or gathering with a group of friends.
What inspires you? People who have genuine passion for something. I believe that we can make this world a better place by simply loving each other so people who strive to live out that ideal inspire me. Seeing equality because it's what we should do and not because we were told to do.
Why are you in churchwork? I have tried my hand at several jobs and while I found fulfillment doing them nothing excites me like serving a community of believers. Being able to tell people that God loves them and sitting with them as they doubt that, fully realize that or something in between is life giving to me. I love hearing people's stories.
Who is a hero of yours? So many ways I could go with this but I would have to say my hero is those who help others without expecting anything in return. My Grandpa Hagen lived this out in his life. He did more for others than anyone I know and he did it because he loved people. I strive to live my life following his example.
