Chad experienced a life changing encounter with Jesus Christ just before he left home for Kansas State University. After growing in his faith tremendously during college, he pursued seminary and received his Master's in Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He was an ordained Presbyterian pastor and ministered to a congregation in Chicago for 10 years. During his pastorate, Chad gained a deep respect and admiration for the Catholic church, particularly in their understanding of Justification, Ecclesiology, and Ethics. After the death of his first wife, Chad felt called to investigate a more thorough understanding of the Catholic faith, which ultimately led to his conversion on Easter, 2014. For the past two years, he taught history and government at a private Christian High School in the Kansas City area. Chad is extremely excited to be working with School of Faith as they help people to have a real and vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. He is passionate about training Catholics to continue to grow in their faith through daily discipleship, and he loves teaching the truths of scripture to all. Chad, Carrie, and their two daughters, Kelissa and Karinna, reside in Olathe, KS.
