Gospel Justice

Whenever Brad gets free time, he loves to meet and photograph people who serve others. Over the last few years, he has been focused on the "Gospel Justice Story Project," through which he collects and reports stories on what Christian legal aid attorneys do. He has also contributed to the Gospel Justice Initiative blog, "Do Likewise."

He released his first multimedia film in July 2013, entitled "Gospel Justice: The Guardian," and wrote and photographed Christians at work serving others for a book called Macedonia, Indiana.
