Chaplain Brad Kenney

From the Rev: Celtic Advent

A native of Denver, CO, Brad Kenney graduated from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, IL, and later began working for the Colorado Rapids as a Public Relations Assistant and then as interim Director. Feeling called to full-time vocational ministry, Brad resigned from the Rapids and went to Denver Seminary in 2001.  Six months later, God opened the door for Brad to return to the Rapids as Team Chaplain and he has voluntarily served the team and guided the vision and ministry of CrossTraining ever since. He is affectionately known to players and staff as “Rev.”

Brad has a Master of Divinity with a specialty in chaplaincy from Denver Seminary and recently completed  requirements for ordination with the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. He served as pastor of care at Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch, CO (2009-2015) and as an assistant pastor of care at Eastern Hills Community Church in Aurora, CO (2005-2009) and has also served as a chaplain in hospice care (2005-2009).

Married since 2001, to Adriana, he is father of four precious daughters.

In his spare time, Brad enjoys playing disc golf, learning guitar, writing, camping, and spending time with his family.
