The Baggetts are members of Christ the King Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Houston, Texas.
When asked why he was drawn to the Westminster Head of School position, Brad share, “Throughout the entire search process, I was struck by the sense of genuine community at Westminster and the commitment of the Board of Trustees and Faculty to ensure that every student is both known and pursued for the sake of the gospel of Christ. Kimberly and I are sincerely humbled and honored to be a part of the Westminster School community as we partner together to raise up a generation of young men and women who are uniquely equipped with the ability and courage to influence the ideas of our day in a manner that is not simply eloquent, but also distinctly biblical.”
