Language of Hope

Symphony Weekend

Brad Powell

“I recently was able to experience worship with several renowned artists and a 52-piece orchestra. It drew me in, and I was awestruck by the power of God. I wanted this experience for NorthRidge, but a full orchestra? Unpublished music? Through much prayer, we’re now one of three churches in America that will be premiering this music with a full symphony and our NorthRidge worship leaders.” – Paul Black, Worship Pastor

About the Speaker

Brad Powell

Senior Pastor,
NorthRidge Church

Brad is not what you’d expect, he’s not your typical pastor. In fact, he was as surprised as anyone when God called him into ministry. Early in life, Brad couldn’t even relate to church. He couldn’t understand the religious language and found it to be both boring and pointless.

His first six years of ministry were in four very different churches and locations; from Rhode Island to Florida, and from 18 to 500 people. The dying church Brad entered in 1990 was truly a calling of faith and obedience. He didn’t doubt God could rebuild NorthRidge, known as Temple Baptist of Detroit at the time. He just doubted the church would follow him as pastor.

Today, NorthRidge is thriving. Under Brad’s leadership, the ministry has flooded the surrounding communities, creating an entirely fresh culture of faith. And because the church continues to grow in impact and influence, Brad remains certain of his and the mission of NorthRidge to Wake the World Up to Jesus.
