Pastor Eric Bradley is the founder and lead pastor of Church With U. It was during his college years that he met and fell in love with Shiann. During those few years at college, both Shiann and Eric experienced Jesus in a way that they had never experienced before. Eric married his college sweetheart, Shiann, in 2009 and together they have three amazing kids: Laurel, Lawson and LC. Before starting Church With U, Eric and Shiann served several years in student ministry, during which, Eric earned his Master’s degree in Church Planting and Evangelism from Liberty University.
In 2009, God began a dream in Shiann and Eric’s heart to plant a life-giving church. So they started working with an organization called ARC (Association of Related Churches) and after months of church planting training they started an internship with LifeWater Church, a church plant in Bossier City, LA. During this time, God developed in them a huge heart for the unchurched and a desire to create environments that unchurched people wanted to be a part of. And on September 21, 2014 in the Enterprise Rec Center with 150 people in attendance, Church With U was born. Now, Church With U sees about 700 people on a weekend in four services spread across two campuses.
