In addition to being the minister, he also served as the camp director of Camp Edisto for 52 years.

Mr. Bradberry was very active in his beloved community, serving as the voice of the Macedonia High School Foxes for 15 years, then keeping the stats for the Berkeley High School Stags for the past 20 years.

Luke 10:2  "Jesus said to them the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field."

Mr. Bradberry's ministry was to preach, teach, pray, baptize, marry, bury and love on generations of families in his community and beyond. Although his presence will be missed, the impact he made will live on through his family, his congregation and the people he served. Much love and appreciation for a loyal  "worker" from a grateful "harvest."
