Senior Minister & Pastor
Chad began as the Sr. Minister at WWCC in February 2013. He and his wife Stephanie have two children, Brady & Eliana, who are both tremendous blessings to them. Chad is from Las Vegas (well, sort of), he moved there as a kid from Massachusetts. Since that time, Chad has served in the U.S. Air Force and has lived in several different places. Stephanie is originally from the Martinsville, VA area and met Chad at Johnson Bible College (Now Johnson University) in Knoxville, TN (where she fell madly in love!). Chad is passionate about the grace of God and helping others to experience His amazing grace. As someone who did not become a Christian until he was an adult, he knows the difference that having Christ makes in life. Chad, Stephanie, Brady & Eliana are excited to be a part of the WWCC family and are eager to see how God is going to move in and through each individual life and how God will use each of us to make a difference in Jesus' Name.
