My name is Brad Ball and I am pastor at Bethsaida Baptist Church in Dublin, GA. I became Senior Pastor at Bethsaida on August 3, 2014. I am founder of Triple Threat Discipleship, which was started in 2013.
I have been in the ministry for 23+ years. I have pastored, planted churches, served on church staff in churches in AL, TN, MS, FL and now in GA. My wife Janice and I have been married for 24 years. Janice is the love of my life and is part of Triple Threat Discipleship. She has her own D-Group. I am originally from Chattanooga, TN and Janice is from Huntsville, AL. Janice and I met at Southside Baptist Church in Huntsville, AL and were married there.
I received my Bachelors of Science degree from Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN. I walked an aisle when I was eleven and was baptized but there was no change in my life. Nine months after I graduated from college I repented of my sins and received Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. Ten months later God called me to preach the gospel. After Janice and I married on March 9, 1991, I enrolled in Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary in Memphis, TN and started in October of 1991. I graduated in December of 1995 with a Masters of Divinity. In 2010 I started working on my Doctor of Ministry at Union University in Jackson, TN. I took all of my seminars and worked on my dissertation at the Stephen Olford Center in Memphis, TN. I graduated with a D. Min degree in Expository Preaching in 2013. My dissertation was titled “A Believers-Discipleship Model for Oak Hill Baptist Church.”
