Brad Thorp was born and raised in Oliver in the South Okanagan valley of British Columbia. He grew up on a fruit orchard in a family of entrepreneurs. His education took him to England and the USA. Brad met the love of his life, Kandus, and they were married in 1982 in Vancouver. In the mid 1980’s they moved to Bern, Switzerland which served as their home base for next nine years. Much of Thorp’s career has focused on teaching and public lectures. In this capacity, the Thorp’s lived several months each in ten major cities of Europe. During this time the Thorp’s welcomed three sons into their family.
The Thorps were asked to coordinate and develop what became known as the Hope Channel International TV network. Today the network is composed of 80 separate channels broadcasting globally. Over the past several decades global travel and assignments have allowed the Thorps to visit and work in more than 70 countries around the globe.
Thorp has focused much of his study in the fundamental basics of healthy, happy living. Hope is absolutely a critical component to surviving and thriving in the challenges of our chaotic world. Research shows for a person to feel “whole” there must be an integration of physical, emotional, and spiritual components. Thorp’s Discover Hope lecture series include Bible prophecy and are compelling, thought-provoking, and useful in helping participants find practical suggestions for discovering and strengthening Hope.
Thorp is as comfortable in a suit and tie as in work jeans, operating machinery on the family farm. He and his wife Kandus love camping, quadding and snow skiing. They are the proud parents of three sons whose families have graced them with long-desired beautiful ‘daughters’ and soon-to-be six treasured grandchildren.
