Chad was born in Lubbock, TX, and grew up in and around Austin, TX. Chad was raised in a Christian home and accepted Christ in his heart the summer after his eighth-grade year. But it wasn’t until he went to college at Texas Tech where God became the priority of his life. His freshman year, God began moving in a powerful way in his life and called him into ministry. Chad has been in the ministry since 1995 and a part of the FiveStone family since June of 2020. He has a passion to see the glory of God spread to all nations and generations and to see the Church become all God desires it to be. He has been blessed by an amazing wife and ministry partner, Marianne, and two incredible boys, Zander and Zeke.
