Executive Pastor - Family Life

Chad and his family are excited to recently move down from Bellingham to join as Executive Pastor-Family Life at Alderwood.  Before joining ACC, he has served as a pastor in the local church for the last 15 years.  Chad graduated from Briercrest College with a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry with an emphasis in Pastoral Theology.

He is passionate about mobilizing the people of God to leave an eternal impact in the community. Helping the Bible come alive and allowing it to shape followers of Jesus in their everyday life, is what he is excited about bringing to the leadership of the church. Chad’s leadership style is inspired by some of today’s most influential pastors as he studies the writings of Andy Stanley, Tim Keller, and many others.  He also studies top corporate leaders to gain a unique perspective on what it takes to lead a successful organization to make an impact for the Kingdom.

Chad and his wife Alysia live in Mukilteo and have two girls.  As a family, they enjoy spending time outdoors and mountains, going to baseball games, and engaging with the culture of the Seattle area.
