Garrett Kadrlik

Young Adults Coordinator

Garrett said he has been given the "fun job" getting to hang out with people his age, creating space for vulnerability, experiencing growth in others and himself, and doing life with a wide variety of people. He also works with guest relations volunteers.

"What brings me the most satisfaction is watching people get connected to other people," Garrett said, "and seeing them both grow in their faith together and with each other."

Garrett grew up in Abrams and chose to follow Christ at age 12 while attending Lake Lundgren Bible Camp.

Garrett has a wide variety of work experience. He started at age 11 planting and weeding in a strawberry patch, then worked at Shopko, TownLine, PDQ, the Hyatt Regency in downtown Green Bay and Dirt Juicery. He also started his own business -- 419 Fishing Co. -- making soft plastic baits, among other items.

GBCC has been Garrett's church home since he was a newborn. He interned in student ministry after graduating from Bay Port High School, then served in a part-time role before coming on staff full-time in 2020.

Garrett is married to Sydney, who also serves on the GBCC staff. They have a golden retriever named Wrigley.

Garrett loves to fish and one day would like to take his angling skills to the Arctic Circle in search of char.

As for a life lesson, Garrett said: "Be present in all you do and enjoy the smallest things in life."
