Chad was an ordained Presbyterian pastor and ministered to a congregation in Chicago for 10 years. During his pastorate, he 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, being a single father with two daughters 3 and under, he relocated back to his Kansas roots. Chad felt called to investigate the Catholic faith more thoroughly, which ultimately led to his conversion on Easter, 2014. Chad is extremely excited to be working with School of Faithhelping to build a culture of evangelism and discipleship throughout the country.
He is passionate about training Catholics to continue to grow in their faith through daily prayer and discipleship and loves teaching theology to laypeople. Chad married Carrie, an incredibly tenacious, beautiful, and gifted woman, and together they’re raising their young army.
