Pastor Chad is passionate about crossing the lines of diversity and bringing people together – unifying them toward the common vision of knowing and serving the living God. His passion overflows into other areas such as his love for wilderness areas and wildlife, especially birding, hiking, and fishing. He has the occasional compulsion to tell awful “dad” jokes from an endless repertoire. Don’t let all the degrees, years of international experience in the mission field, and determined vision for the church fool you. Pastor Chad is a fun-loving Buckeye fan who is just as comfortable surfing around on a ripstik as he is preaching a sermon. His fresh, relatable approach to those around him is one of the many reasons we appreciate his leadership.
