Chad grew up in church, but it wasn’t until his junior year in high school that he realized he was lost and heading to a real place called hell. During the summer of ’99, he cried out to God and asked to be saved. The very next year, he felt God’s calling in his life to be in full-time ministry. After working in youth and children’s ministry for over 8 years, his wife Ashley and he felt the Lord’s calling to become part of the Word of Life family. In June of 2010 they were accepted as missionaries to the United States. His passion and desire is to reach today’s youth through evangelism, discipleship, and leadership training. Their goal is to help local churches develop vibrant youth and children’s ministries. Ultimately, to see revival in America that effects the entire world!
