In 2012, Brad and Lori Bynum, along with Kristin Railton and Jason and Christina Shaw started the Gulf Coast International Church of Christ. Though separated by distance, they began meeting in each other's homes with someone always traveling as much as 2 1/2 hours each way. Brad and Lori were raised on the beautiful Gulf Coast and always dreamed of building a great church in this area of the state; a church that would reflect the love and compassion of Christ. After Brad's sudden passing in January 2015, the church, now known as the Northwest Florida Church, has continued to grow both spiritually and numerically. We will always be inspired by Brad's legacy of love for God and others.
