Our Team

Brad Lacy

Lead Pastor

Brad Lacy was born in Columbus, Georgia – but raised in Atlanta. While attending the University of Georgia, he was called into full-time ministry and transferred to Southeastern University in Florida. While there, he met and married his wife, Stacy.

For the past two decades, Brad has been in full-time ministry in a variety of positions. For his first decade of ministry, he served as a youth pastor and then as a missionary to college students on university campuses. After that, Brad joined the North Highland team in student ministries and went on to be the church’s Executive Pastor. In January of 2023, he transitioned to Lead Pastor. Pastor Brad brings over 2 decades of ministry and non-profit experience, and we are excited to see how God uses him to serve at North Highland.
