Brad Robertson
Brad Robertson
Spiritual Development
Hospitality Coordinator

"Brad Robertson was a student worker for our LU Stages team before assuming a full-time position shortly after he graduated from Liberty, a position he has now served in for almost two years. The promise he had shown as a student worker was confirmed quickly once he came on full-time. Since that time, he has proven himself to be one of the most dependable employees on our entire team. And that really is the word that comes to mind when I think of Brad — dependable. But that dependability is built on trust, and that’s probably the highest compliment I can pay to him. I trust Brad. He is a gift to both me and the colleagues that he serves alongside, and I’m really grateful to have him on the team." - Josh Rutledge, VP of OSD
