Church Staff

Brad Clark, Senior Pastor

Pastor Brad was called to Southside as the full-time pastor in 2013 after serving for 25 years in the youth ministry in Missouri, Florida and Texas. He considers himself blessed as the Lord continues to give him an urgency to understand and reach our ever-changing culture with the one thing they hunger for most- truth. The heartbeat of his calling is to this community and to families at all levels of their spiritual walk; encouraging them to experience the fulfillment of a God-centered lifestyle, preparing them to remain connected to Christ and the church, while equipping them to impact their world with the Gospel of Christ.           

Brad, and his wife Kendra, have been blessed with three boys: Kiley, and wife Lauren, their daughter Addison, and son's Wyatt and Emmett reside in Lithia, FL; Koda and wife Ashley and daughter, Taylor reside in DeBary, FL; Jaden & wife Lacey reside in Apollo Beach. In his free time, you will find Pastor Brad watching or coaching basketball, spending time with his family, at the beach, kayaking and enjoying the great outdoors.

We are grateful to have the Pastor Brad leading us here at Southside, so if you are looking for a church home where you can worship/serve, full-time or during your seasonal visit, we would love for you to come worship and spend time getting to know our Southside family through the weekly services and gatherings!​
