Canon for Congregations
Brad Purdom went to seminary from the Diocese of Ohio, was ordained in 1996 and has spent his entire ordained life here: first as rector of Trinity Church/Alliance, then of Church of the Good Shepherd/Lyndhurst, and since 2009 as a member of the bishop’s program staff. He has been married to Mary Jo Purdom since 1979 and they have three married children and two grandchildren. His M.Div. is from The School of Theology at Sewanee, TN. Brad’s particular interests in parish life and vitality center around its foundation in adult faith formation and in a meaningful relationship with its local neighborhood. In recent years much of his formal continuing education has been through the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western University.
