Dr. Hal Brady
continues ministry in retirement
Former St. Luke United Methodist Church pastor Dr. Hal Brady has continued his ministry in retirement through writing, teaching, weekly television broadcasts and a website (www.halbradyministries.com).
Wanting to continue proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ after 50 years of active ministry and his June 2011 retirement from the South Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church, he formed Hal Brady Ministries.
Whether teaching seminars, writing Sunday school lessons for the Advocate, or through his
weekly television broadcast, there are two underlying purposes out of which he
"The purpose for the ministry is one, to present the gospel of Jesus Christ in a relevant, Biblical and vital way," Dr. Brady
"The second purpose is to encourage people and to remind them there is still God."
Every Thursday night at 8, Atlanta-area residents can tune in to the Atlanta Interfaith Broadcasters (AIB) network to hear relevant and Biblical teaching from Dr. Brady
Every other week, he
heads to the studio and films two sessions back-to-back.
"I have preached one sermon three times each Sunday for the past 25 years," he
"But I find it to be much more difficult to preach two completely different sermons within five minutes of each other!"
Each of the messages is also uploaded to the Hal Brady Ministries
More than 70 programs are available for instant viewing.
Deeply devoted to the South Georgia Conference, Dr. Brady, who now lives in Atlanta, still heads the Conference Center Task Force.
Raising the needed money has been difficult with the current state of the economy, he
said, but he
and the task force are still working hard to secure funding to build the nearly 11,000-square-foot Conference Center.
As the newest Advocate Sunday school lesson writer, Dr. Brady is sharing his faith with a familiar audience.
"I think that they (Advocate Sunday school lessons) have absolutely been vital to people who are interested in Sunday school," he
