Chad grew up in Champlin, Minnesota, attending Advent Lutheran Church in Maple Grove. He has been married to Jenny for ten years and they have three children; Seth (9), Emma (6), and Luke (5). Chad enjoys outdoor activities with the family.
I love to snowmobile. It has been a family sport since I was a child. I have enjoyed getting into fishing the last couple of years with my family.
Chad has a degree in Golf Course and Grounds Management and after working in the greens industry for 18 years, he has been a stay-at-home dad for the past five years.
It has been the most rewarding job.
Zion was the first church Chad and Jenny visited after moving to Buffalo over ten years ago.
It has been a great fit for our family.
This will be Chad’s third year volunteering as a Crew Leader for Vacation Bible School at Zion.
With a little encouragement from my wife I decided to give it a try and I am so glad that I did. I love seeing the kids come in with such big smiles and ready to learn about God.
Volunteers like Chad are vital to Zion’s Children and Family Ministry team, and they are always looking for more
Chad has been an incredible Crew Leader for VBS the past 2 years! We are SO thankful to have dads involved that are willing to volunteer and spend time with the kids… it is so important for our kids to see moms AND dads involved in their faith formation! Chad is such a positive role model and truly is a gift to our Children’s Ministry at Zion!Kirsten Kelly
