Pat Braddy, Pastor
Pastor Pat was born and raised in Greeley. He married his high school sweetheart; Jolene, and God has graciously gifted them with 56 years of marriage. They have three grown daughters and seven grandchildren, the youngest being 12. They also have an “adopted” daughter and she and her husband are serving the Lord oversees in Madagascar.
Pat and Jolene first met on horseback in east Greeley, while Pat was working in the family horse business. He attended CSU and graduated with a degree in Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, while directing animal health and nutrition for Monfort Feedlots and Monfort sheep feeding operations he came to know Jesus as his personal Savior. Jolene had come to faith a few months earlier and was instrumental in helping Pat understand his need for a Savior.
Pat attended Denver seminary, graduated with a Masters of Divinity, then served and pastored a church in Greeley for 30 years. Jolene faithfully served alongside Pat, leading women’s ministry and partnering with him in life-to-life discipleship of many couples. After leaving their Greeley church family they continued their discipling ministry among many church leaders around the country and connected with the Crossway Network. They began attending a Crossway church in Windsor and served on staff there for 6 years. Both Jason and Pat served together as pastors during that time.
Pat and Jolene’s passion is reaching out to people they find who are open to spiritual truth and willing to explore the Scriptures, discovering who Jesus is and all he came to do. Their ministry includes helping folks along a path toward trusting in Christ for salvation and discipling them to reach out to others sharing the truth, blessings and joy they have received in coming to faith in Jesus.

Mike Delaney, Deacon, Facilities
Mike oversees all matters that relate to the physical facilities for Redemption Greeley. He is a Colorado native currently living on the east side of Ault with his wife
Lan, and their three sons, Joseph, Joshua, and Jacob. Together with his wife, they
operate an electrical business that serves the Northern Colorado region. In his free
time, Mike loves to hunt, fish, read, hang-out with his family, and help others.
One day while riding his bike through the town of Ault in search of a church to get
married in, Mike was drawn to an early 1900’s church building with a beautifully
stamped brass door, reading, “Behold the Lamb of God” (John 1:29). The Lord works in
mysterious ways, and after going inside and meeting with the pastor over the course of
a few weeks, and reading the scriptures, Mike was convicted of his sin, and need of a
savior. Now over twenty years later, Mike continues to grow in the knowledge of Jesus
and has served the church in many ways such as, a drummer, greeter, youth group
leader, elder, and most recently as a deacon. Mike is excited to see what God will do
through His church at Redemption of Greeley
