BRAD ROBERTS - SENIOR PASTOR

 

Brad made a commitment to the Lord through Inter-varsity Christian Fellowship at CSU Sacramento in 1977, during his Senior year at CSUS.  Brad joined Bob Henderson during Bob's Bible Study and was one of the founders of Calvary Chapel of Gridley.  In 1989 he was ordained and served as Associate Pastor of Gridley Calvary Chapel until 2017 when Bob Henderson passed the baton of Senior Pastor to Brad in 2017, 

 

After Brad graduated from Sac State, he and Angela were married. Brad and Angela prayed that the Lord would direct them to a small community were they could raise their family and get involved in high school ministry. Brad received a job teaching science and math at a local high school in Biggs, was involved with Young Life and started attending Maranatha, a Calvary Chapel in Yuba City.  While teaching, Brad continued at Chico State and received his administrative credential.  He retired from education after 36 years and is now able to devote full-time to the ministry.

 

Brad and Angela have responded to a call in the mission's field and have led mission teams for sixteen years to Mexico exposing many youth and adults to third world missions. Ministering to the lost and dying world has made a huge impact in both the hearts of the Mexican people and those who minister to them.

 

As a pastor/teacher Brad believes that his calling is "for equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God." Ephesians 4:13 - 14.

Brad and Angela have two children, Kristina and Matthew, who are both married to godly spouses, DeAndre and Kristin. Their lives are further blessed with their grandsons Noah and Caleb and granddaughter Sophia.

BOB HENDERSON - NOW WITH THE LORD


Bob Henderson was one of the founders of Calvary Chapel and was the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel of Gridley for 31 years, Ca for more than 30 years.  Bob entered the presence f the Lord on May 3, 2017.

Bob and his wife Nancy met while in high school and dated for 4 years. They married in 1955. Bob served in the Navy and later worked for ATT for 27 years. They settled in Gridley, California and soon a desire arose in Bob's heart to know God.  


Being the pragmatic person he is, he began a Bible study in his home and invited his friends and neighbors. They began to read and discuss the Bible, but none of them yet knew the Lord! A local pastor heard about the Bible study and offered to join the study and teach. Bob eagerly accepted the offer. After the first Bible study the Pastor asked the group is they had ever been born again through faith in Christ Jesus. This was God's appointed time for Bob and Nancy to be saved!


He began to grow in his faith quickly and soon, a newly ordained pastor was sent out from Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa to pastor this newly formed church. His name was Leo Giovinetti. The small church was blessed for 5 years under the teaching of Leo but the Lord led Leo to leave Gridley and begin ministry in San Diego, Ca.


By this time, Bob was an elder and teacher in the church, along with having a Bible study at Butte County jail and also a volunteer chaplain at San Quentin and Folsom prisons. Leo knew that God was leading him to raise Bob up to pastor the church. Bob had retired from ATT to be available in full time ministry and humbly accepted the call for his life.  Bob is survived by his godly wife, Nancy.
