Chad was born in Lubbock, Texas but grew up in Seminole, Florida. Chad has an A.A. degree from SPC, a B.A. degree from USF and an M.Div. degree from RTS Orlando. He currently is a very part-time D.Min student at RTS.

Chad was ordained to the gospel ministry in 1996 in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC) where he served as a church planter and also in pastoral ministry in three different Orthodox Presbyterian Churches until 2009. He comes to Tradewinds Church (ARP) after having served for seven years as a pastor in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).

As Tradewinds’ Associate Pastor of Discipleship and Church Life, Chad longs to help God’s people mature and grow as true disciples through the power of the gospel. Chad desires to see God’s people drawn into the church to worship, serve and use their gifts to edify the church body. Chad, along with the leadership of Tradewinds Church, desires to see spiritually mature Christians anchored in Christ and making a kingdom difference, especially in the lives of those among whom they live and work every day.

Chad takes great joy in his family and enjoys biking, golf, music, reading and making his family stop at weird roadside attractions. Chad also enjoys making a difference where he lives through community service. In 2015 Chad was given the key to the City of Villa Rica, GA.
