Chad grew up in Rochester, New York, as the third of six children. He moved to Missouri where he earned his BA in Bible. Upon graduation he went into full-time ministry with a focus on urban ministry. He moved to Brooklyn, NY where he led a program reaching children and families in the Bronx and Harlem. In 1987 he married Cheryl. A year later they moved to Indianapolis to lead The Caring Place, the outreach program of Calvary Temple. He led that ministry until 2022. Ministering to the urban children and families is where he learned how important it is for people to truly know Christ, which means they must know the Word of God and understand their faith. For then and only then can they be confident in their relationship with him and confidently share that faith with those around them. This is why he has such a love for philosophy, apologetics, and theology and wants young people to understand them. Cheryl and Chad have four children, four children-in-law, and nine grandchildren. In 2018, Chad earned an MA in Philosophy and Apologetics from Lincoln Christian University. In 2022 he transitioned from working at the church to start the iNDY Network (www.iNDYNetwork.org), a non-profit focused on creating a community of believers that reach individuals and renew neighborhoods. He is on the board of P30, a non-profit focused on providing space and support for entrepreneurs who are from the far eastside of Indianapolis or are establishing businesses on the far eastside. He has a love of teaching and believes that young people need to discover the truth and the power of the Gospel so they may one day be able to join Paul in stating, “I am not ashamed of the Gospel for it is the power of God for salvation” (Ro. 1:16). That is why he loves to teach Philosophy, Apologetics, Theology, and Bible, and to do so in a discussion style that allows young people to experience the truth and the power of the Gospel.
