President & CEO, Bright Media Foundation
Author and Speaker
Brad Bright is the youngest son of Bill and Vonette Bright, the founders of Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru).
Brad graduated from Wheaton College in 1982 with a B.A. in political science and history. During the 1980’s he served as an aide in both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives.
Brad currently serves as the president and CEO of Bright Media Foundation. The mission of Bright Media grew out of his father’s seminal observation, “We can trace all our human problems to our view of God.”
Brad asserts history clearly shows that the only way to change culture is to change society’s view of God. God-concept always shapes worldview, which in turn governs ideology and then even determines how a person votes.
He authored GOD is the Issue, a book to help Christians co-opt the cultural dialogue, making God THE issue in shrewd and compelling ways. He demonstrates how in any situation we can either Rollover, React or Reframe. Only reframing, like Jesus, enables us to move from defense to offense.
He co-authored Your 7 Duties As A Christian Citizen, a booklet to help Christians more effectively protect and advance religious freedom within American culture.
He recently re-edited his father’s classic book God, Discover His Character for a new generation. Released under the new title, God, Who Are You Anyway?, the book tackles the pivotal question, “Do your experiences shape how you see God, or does your view of God shape how you see your experiences?”
He and his amazing wife, Kathy, live in Orlando, Florida.
