At a time when our nation is
sharply and bitterly divided in politics as well as spiritual and moral
questions, Rev. Dr. William “Bradford” Harbaugh of Raleigh, NC oversees a team
of non-denominational, non-partisan, non-political ministers in states coast to
coast. These ministers serve in the name of Jesus, bringing a pastoral presence
and providing prayer and biblical guidance through clearly written expositional
Bible studies and personal soul care. They bring gospel hope and spiritual
strength to all governing leaders and staff of both major parties, all human
beings serving under duress. The result often is peacemaking. This ministry
meets personally with governors, lieutenant governors, treasurers, secretaries
of state, attorney generals and state and congressional legislators.
Brad recently hosted a broadcast roundtable, “Is Your Religious Freedom At Risk?” featuring former Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback who today is U.S. Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom. The panel included Louisiana State Chaplain Michael Sprague, Missouri State Chaplain John Battaglia and Kansas State Minister David DePue. Call-in questions were made by Senator Donzella James (D-GA), Senator Kim Hammer (R-AR), State Rep. Doug Richey (R-MO) and State Rep. Jason Chipman (R-MO) as well as Georgia Public Service Commission Vice Chairman Tim Echols. The 58:38 minute-broadcast is available for viewing on YouTube, ROKU Apple TV and Amazon Fire.
Brad is the son of the late William Gradon and Dorothy (Husak) Harbaugh of Wellington, OH, of the family of Allen Edward and Margaret (Williams) Harbaugh, the famed “Mountain Poet” of Mill Run, PA. He is affectionately known as "Papa" to nine grandchildren. He and his wife Robin have been blessed with 42 years of marriage.
