Chad was born and raised in Colorado and met his wife Kriss there. They have 3 adult children, all men! Chad owned and operated restaurants for years. In 1996 he started an employment screening company, Affirm. In 2003 Chad and his family moved to Ashland to be closer to Kriss’ family.
Chad was called into ministry in 2008. He would go on to be the planting pastor of the Oaks Community Church in Drummond WI. This was a long process that was bathed in prayer. For two and a half years Chad and a handful of others went to Drummond to pray for God’s leading. In 2011 the Oaks started a food shelf and free clothing store, and they started worship services in 2012. The same year, Chad helped start Respawn Gaming Ministry. A boys ministry for middle school and high school boys. In 2016, God called Brian Cole to be the pastor of the Oaks. Chad was there in a supporting role until January of 2018, when he was called to work with and mentor Ryan Olson in his pastoring of the Mellen church plant, the Rock, which started worship services in September 2018.
Chad’s business has continued to grow in Ashland, currently employing over 30 people. Chad’s passion is evangelism and discipleship. He continues to enjoy the fruit of both in working with Ryan Olson and others at the Rock as well as Ron Barland and other adult and student leaders at Respawn.
