Rev. Brad and Robin Stacy
Pastor Brad, lovingly referred to as PB over the years, is an ordained minister in the Church of the Nazarene. PB attended Mount Vernon Nazarene University where he earned a degree in Sociology and Criminal Justice. After serving sixteen years in public service, he answered a call to full time ministry and completed additional educational requirements for ministry at Mount Vernon Nazarene University and Nazarene Bible College.
Upon entering the ministry PB served as Pastor to Youth and Families in Parsons, Kansas; Westerville, Ohio; and Delaware, Ohio. He has also enjoyed connecting with teenagers and parents alike as a featured speaker at youth camps, retreats, and other special events. He most recently served as the Senior Pastor and Director of Lifelink Community Church and Compassionate Ministry Center in Marion, Ohio before accepting the call to Willard Church of the Nazarene.
Pastor Brad enjoys being with his family, playing games, watching movies, playing tennis, biking, hiking, and going to Reds, Clippers, Blue Jacket and Buckeye games. He loves hanging out and traveling anywhere with his wife Robin, a high school teacher and lifelong ministry partner. Together, they love spending time with their adult children who live in various parts of the country and their beautiful, thirteen-year-old daughter, Marah, who now enjoys getting most of the attention at home. In 2016 PB and Robin celebrated the birth of their first grandchild, Logan, as well as their 30th wedding anniversary. They absolutely love their new role as grandparents.
Pastor Brad's favorite passage of scripture is 1st Corinthians 13: 4-8 and 13 because of its practical application to life and ministry. He is passionate about developing real relationships and sharing the love of Christ with others.
Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self - seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trust, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails...And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love
(I Corinthians 13:4-8, 13, NIV).
Rev. James & Adavee Pomerich
James serves as an Associate Pastor and his wife Adavee serves as the Worship Director. They've been married just over 10 years and have two kids in Elementary school. A daughter Lydia and a son Ethan.
James enjoys spending time with his family, preaching, teaching, and playing video games. He uses the latter along with youtube as a mission field to share his faith. His guiding verse is Colossians 4:3-6 And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
