BeLoved Illinois Founder

BeLoved Illinois was launched by Promise Bradley in 2013.   


After serving under BeLoved founder, Sandi Savage, for a year, Promise launched BeLoved Illinois to serve the strip clubs of Southern Illinois and bring awareness of human trafficking in Southern Illinois to agencies, service providers, educators, and law enforcement.  After six more years of serving as BeLoved Illinois Director, Promise was privileged to hand over the organization to Heather in January 2019. 


Promise is a gifted speaker, preacher, and prophetic artist.  She is  passionate about seeing the culture of Heaven expressed in the earth.  She comes alive most when taking the light of the Gospel directly into dark places or when equipping believers to be salt, light, and leaven in their spheres of influence.
