Brad Stretar
Pastor & Area Director Of Likewise St. Louis.

Brad and Courtney Stretar have been married for 8 years, and have 2 beautiful children, Evelyn (5) and Finnley (1). Brad has been leading worship for 15 years and currently serves as the worship pastor at Harvester Christian Church in St. Charles, Missouri.

Brad has a deep desire to help facilitate a restorative and encouraging environment for area worship leaders.

“I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoy connecting with local worship leaders. I love to hear about what they are excited about, what they are learning, and what they have been challenged with. St. Louis is in great need of this ministry to connect worship leaders together, to be encouraged and challenged and to ultimately know they are not alone in ministry! We are better together!”
