Chad grew up in Southern California and came to faith in Christ in 3rd grade at an evangelistic crusade. While pursuing an undergraduate education in Science at Biola University, he met his wife Cristal and the two were married in May of 2009.
Following their time at Biola, the two moved to Minot, ND where Chad served in the Air Force as an ICBM operator by day and pursued an M. A. in Theological Studies from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary by night. In 2012 Chad and Cristal escaped the frozen tundra by moving back to Southern California so Chad could work toward his M.Div. at Westminster Seminary California—during which time Chad also served as the Pastor of Student Discipleship at a local church. It was during this time that they welcomed their daughter, Olivia, into the family.
Upon graduation, the family headed up to the Bay Area where Chad joined the staff at Wellspring as the Executive Pastor.
Chad enjoys reading, playing sports of all kinds, and watching witty sitcoms.
