On The Edge Interview with Speaker + Author, Brad Bright
Brad Bright is the son of Bill and Vonette Bright, the founders of Campus Crusade for Christ, now known as Cru in the U.S..
Brad graduated from Wheaton College in 1982 with a B.A. in political science and history. He entered national politics as a result of Watergate and studying the life of William Wilberforce, the British Parliamentarian credited with ending the slave trade in the British Empire.
In the 1980’s he worked as an aide to U.S. Senator William Armstrong of Colorado, and as a deputy director of the National Republican Congressional Committee. In addition, he served as the director of an Atlanta based foundation which promoted volunteerism in the inner city.
At the age of 31, he joined the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ, convinced that the only long-term effective solution to society’s problems must begin with the spiritual dimension of life. He spent seven years ministering to college students at the University of Washington, and then served as the first National Director of Pinnacle Forum, a strategy to reach cultural influencers with the message of Jesus Christ.
Today, Brad serves as the president and CEO of Bright Media Foundation.
He is the author of GOD is the Issue, a book to help Christians co-opt the cultural conversation, by shrewdly moving from defense to offense like Jesus did. The book is predicated on his father’s statement, “We can trace all our human problems to our view of God.”
He is also the co-author of Your 7 Duties As A Christian Citizen, Because God is Awesome! and Getting to Know Jesus for Little Ones.
