In 1982, Brad’s family moved to South Gate, California where his father accepted a call to serve as a pastor. Being raised as a pastor’s kid, Brad was always in church, kids ministries, and youth group, but at a summer camp when he was fifteen made a commitment to Christ, which has since led him to vocational ministry.
After High School he moved across the country to attend Bible college in Western Michigan where he studied theology. It was also at there that he met his wife, Vikki, and they were married shortly after his ordination and graduation in 1998.
In 1999, Brad & Vikki moved across the country to the Spokane Valley where he was a youth pastor. It was there that they had their first two children, Audren & Hudson.

becky anderson

children's ministry


I was born and raised here in Spokane Valley. I came to know Jesus Christ around the age of 6. It was then that I learned “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. (John 3:16) It wasn’t until later in life that those words actually traveled to my heart and I realized that it was my own personal sin that Jesus conquered on the cross and that he died to save me. His love is real and I accepted Him as my Lord and Savior and since that moment I have learned to trust Him with my life and to walk daily with Him. I have found such joy and peace through the sanctification Christ has done and continues to do in my life.. I am constantly amazed at the ways God chooses to use me in His grand plan and the ways He equips me when He calls me to a task. “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness”. (2 Cor. 12:9)

My husband and I have 3 beautiful children; two boys and one girl. We are grateful for the opportunities we as a family have at Genesis to grow in discipleship and training our children in the way they should go (Proverbs 22:6). It is a privilege to be able to use the gifts God has blessed me with by serving as the Children's Director. I have been blessed by attending Genesis Church, making new friends, enjoying the rewards of a loving church family, and serving in the Children's Ministry. One of my favorite parts of a Sunday morning is getting a hug or high five from all of the sweet kids I have had the privilege to teach. My heart has been filled with such joy in the relationships I get to be a part of with each family in our church. My husband and I are excited to walk along side each family and child as they grow in their relationship with Christ. I am available to answer any questions that you may have and I'm always open to new ideas!
