    LEAD Pastor

    Pastor Brad transitioned into his current role in 2020 after serving as Associate Pastor since 2012. He met the beautiful Lindsay Claire Thompson while teaching a Bible study in 2001—she just walked right in. Their friendship developed into something a wee bit more significant, and, voilà, they now have 5 lively children (Shep, Annie, Colt, Tate and Georgia Kate). Pastor Brad is a perpetual student—just ask his understanding wife (sigh)—who desires to see church members embrace the need for engaging both hearts and minds. He also enjoys cycling (road) and mountain biking whenever time permits. He received his Bachelor of Arts from Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL (English); his Master of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC; and his Doctor of Philosophy in Apologetics from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

  • Angela Wieland

    Ministry Assistant

    Angela Wieland has been serving as Cedar Creek's Ministry Assistant since March 2011. Having been a faithfully serving member for years, she was eager for the opportunity to serve the CCBC family and staff in this special way. Angela is responsible for managing the church calendar, facilitating prayer and email communications, updating the website and social media accounts, and greeting visitors weekly on campus. She also produces most of our printed materials such as the weekly newsletter and Sunday bulletin, and also serves as the church's bookkeeper. Angela and her husband, Andrew, served faithfully in our Children's Ministry for years... which was good preparation for their first child's arrival in 2011! In 2016 and 2022 they welcomed their second and third daughters. We are grateful for Angela's hard work, love for the church, and her ability to keep the boys in the office flying straight!
