Braatz Named Chaplain

MNU President David Spittal announced the appointment today of Rev. Brady Braatz as MNU University Chaplain.  Braatz is a 2001 graduate of MNU with a bachelor’s degree in business communications. He holds a master’s degree from Nazarene Theological Seminary and is currently completing doctoral studies at Fuller Theological Seminary.

Braatz has a rich history at MNU having served as an admissions counselor, a resident educator and assistant chaplain, director of spiritual life and since January 2016, interim chaplain. Since his appointment as interim chaplain, Braatz has led a committee to study and recommend a new format for university chapels, discipleship groups and service opportunities which will be implemented this fall.

“I am pleased that Brady’s creativity and passion for spiritual life and discipleship has already energized this essential core element of our university mission and purposes,” Spittal said.  

Braatz and his wife Kreisa (Patredis ’01) reside in Olathe. They have three children, Darby, Simon and Norah.
