Brad Harbaugh

Brad is excited about God’s call to serve as President of Capitol Commission, Inc. He realizes that it is not about him, it is about exalting Christ and presenting to our world’s leaders the hope and guidance God’s word brings!

The Lord has blessed Brad with a wonderful wife, Robin. Brad and Robin have four children and eleven grandchildren. Above all, they are most thankful to see their children following Christ in their lives.

Brad and Robin met at college and have served Christ together for the past forty years. Brad is an Ordained Pastor and has served as Pastor in Ohio, Michigan, and most recently for over 13 years at Shepherds Church in Cary, North Carolina.

Brad has an earned doctorate in counseling from Westminster, Philadelphia, Pa. He has served as an adjunct professor at Shepherds Theological Seminary, Cary, NC. He teaches and preaches regularly to churches and groups across America.
