who we are
Chad's joy, outside his walk with Christ, is his family. Chad married Marla in 1993 after dating in high school. They went off from IL after high school as Chad served in the Navy for four years. Along the way, Chad received Christ when he least expected it. He didn't grow up in church, and his road to Christ was a unique one. Stick around DBC long enough and you will hear his story woven through his messages.
After the Navy, Chad went to college chasing what he thought was his career as an aircraft technician, but God proved otherwise. He received his degree and Airframe and Powerplant license from Southern Illinois University.
A few years into that he was compelled that full time ministry was his destiny, so he loaded up the truck and moved to Florida (sounds like a TV theme song). While in ministry, he received his Master's degree in Theological Studies from Liberty University. He served in a great church in West Melbourne, and now we call him Pastor here at DBC, or as he prefers, Chad.
Hobbies: Family time, Running, biking, hiking, Miami Dolphins football, and good coffee
Student/Creative Arts Pastor
Jared joined the DBC team in 2011 as the Student and Creative Arts Pastor. He married his sweetheart, Hope Green in 2007, and he still can’t figure out why God is so good to him. Seeing students follow Christ and becoming ministers in their own culture is one of the foremost passions of Jared’s life. Another is leading the church in worship and encountering the amazing, unchanging, holy, just, and loving God.
Jared likes woodworking, playing guitar, spending time with his family, and any cookies you might be so inclined to bring by the office.
