Pastor Brad with wife

Pastor Brad Haugen and his wife, Jula, served and attended Peace Lutheran Church in Port Byron, Illinois, for three and a half years before coming to Followers of Christ Lutheran Church in Plainfield, Illinois. Jula has worked for three years as a maternal child health nurse. She is currently staying home to raise their two year-old son. Jula and Brad also have a three and a half year-old 90 lb Goldendoodle who's becoming fast friends with their son. The dog and the toddler make for quite the circus act at times!

Pastor Brad's hobbies include reading, running, hiking, and spending time with his family outdoors.
