Lift school of ministries 

Lift School of Ministry is a great opportunity for people who are aspiring to become ministry leaders. Here students will not just get an accredited Bachelors Degree in Ministerial Leadership, but they will receive hands on training during their time here. Lift Church is filled with leaders who are ready to mentor the next generation of leaders. The practical experience tied in with the educational experience is a learning system that has shown to produce leaders who have the knowledge and experience to lead as soon as they graduate. 



Steve Bradshaw 

Steve’s goal is to involve everyone in the church in ministry, providing opportunities to serve Jesus Christ through service to others, both in and outside the church. He and his wife, Mary Beth came to Lift Church in May, 2014, having served with The Assemblies of God in Michigan. They have two grown children, Brianna. who moved to Venice with them, and Weston, who stayed in Michigan to continue his involvement in worship ministry. In his “spare” time, Steve enjoys the beach, golfing, and movies.  He enjoys vacationing “anywhere tropical.” His favorite Bible verse is Psalm 37:4, “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”


Joey Adams

I have an optimistic heart that always looks for the best in people and has a goal to make everyone feel like family when they walk through the doors of Lift Church. I believe that there should be no one that feels left out or unwelcome at church. The verse that has helped shape my ministry and personal life is 1 Corinthians 9:22 "To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some."I started attending Lift Church in 2011 after attending Cincinnati Christian University to pursue his degree in Ministerial Leadership. He received his Associates Degree through our Leadership program with Central Bible College and has recently received his Bachelors in Ministerial Leadership through Southeastern University. He joined our staff on September 6, 2015.
