Jesse is a former professional soccer goalkeeper (played in Zimbabwe, Africa and Aberdeen, Scotland), radio host, podcaster, author, and speaker. He didn't grow up believing in God and never expected to become a pastor.
A graduate of Dartmouth College, his curiosity about faith began there. In an Intro to World Religions course, he began to sense that there was far more to this life than what meets the eye. After surviving several close calls with death, he is truly grateful for every new day and opportunities to encourage people in their journey.
Jesse Bradley has served as a college pastor on a major campus (University of Iowa) and in San Diego (North Coast Church). He has been a senior pastor in the Bay Area, and currently serves at Grace Community Church near Seattle. Jesse also leads with Saturate the Sound, a gospel saturation movement happening in the Puget Sound. He came to know the Lord at Dartmouth College through a class on the introduction to world religions. It was the first time Jesse read the Bible. He was the first one in his family to follow Jesus, so outreach started up right away. God redirected Jesse from professional soccer to full-time ministry, with a passion for evangelism
Playing overseas in Scotland and Zimbabwe was a dream come true. Jesse and his wife Laurie have four children and are now in the parenting and minivan driving role with youth sports. He also has experience working with athletes
for many years at the University Of Iowa. Any age, level of competition, or topic related to sports finds Jesse in his comfort zone.
