Assistant Connections Pastor
Season is a daughter of the Most-High King. After spending over 30 years performing on stage (from the time she could walk) the Lord called her into ministry. That led Season to pursue her Masters of Divinity from Bethel Seminary and to join Christianmingle.com. One led her to graduate with her M.Div in May of 2016 and the other led her to her husband, Kris, and her 3 amazing daughters (11, 13, and 15). Passionate about freedom and healing, releasing the glory of God, and telling the best story well through preaching and teaching, Season has big dreams and prays even bigger. She and her husband LOVE to travel and are always ready with a "yes" to whatever and wherever the Holy Spirit leads. While full of life and joy, she also is almost always full of iced tea.
Guest Services Pastor
Adriana Bradley has one goal and that is to make God smile. One of the greatest joys in her life is to see others do the same. God’s house is a special place for Adriana as she found refuge in it and made it her safe place at a very young age. Two words to best describe Adriana are vintage bright. Adriana grew up with a mom that passionately loved all things repurposed and 2nd hand and she inherited this passion. In 2009 Adriana decided to love God more by exploring how much God loved her and surrendered to the idea that she can never out love God and as a result found a greater capacity to love herself and others through Centerpoint church.
Adriana has served God all over California in Escondido, San Pedro, Santa Monica, Santa Maria, San Francisco and overseas in Russia and Spain.
