My beloved wife and I happily married in June of 2011. I am grateful to God for her love and support. We have two children, Evan who is 4 and Sean who is 2. They are a huge blessing!

How did you come to trust Christ as your Savior?

I came to trust Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord when I was introduced to Him by my best friend while attending college. I was able to ask him difficult questions and observe his godly lifestyle, which convinced me God was real.

One day, I was reading the story of the Ethiopian Eunuch who was baptized by Phillip the Evangelist. Afterwards, I asked my friend if he would also baptize me since I believed in the gospel. We filled up a bath tub and prayed to the Lord. It was this day in December of 2007 that I trusted in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.

What is your favorite part of Scripture and why?

If I had to choose my favorite Scripture verse it would be Ephesians 2:8-9 which states, “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” This passage is pivotal for understanding the grace we receive as sinners. If it wasn’t for this free gift bestowed upon me by Jesus, I would rightfully suffer the vengeance of God’s wrath for eternity. However, God, rich in His mercy, bled in my place and gave me His righteousness. Praise God!

  2. Chad, thanks for liking my post. I wonder if you know about the Grace Conference every year up at Quentin Road Bible Baptist Church in the north suburbs of Chicago. We’ve been going for about five years and can highly recommend it. My mentor, Dr. Robert Lightner, from Dallas Seminary speaks there every year. I think you might like it and they have something for pastor’s wives and great stuff for kids while you’re there. They have scholarships if you are financially challenged (what pastor isn’t???) and can also help with housing or put you up somewhere. Here’s info: http://www.graceconference.com/qrbbc Let me know if I can help with any information. It is always refreshing for my wife and I. Even my seventeen year-old looks forward to it every year.

    1. Hey J Garrott. Sorry it took me so long to respond to your message. That’s interesting to hear that you are the youngest grandson of Carver! I was mightily blessed when I went to Southern Seminary in Louisville, and hope to go back in the future to pursue my D.Min. Keep up the good work brother!
