Chad was born and raised in Central, IL. It was there that he met and married the love of his life, Jan, in 1993. They have been blessed with 3 sons, Derek, Logan (Amanda), and Korey. Chad worked as an Ag mechanic and Jan worked as an RN. In 2006, they were asked by a family member to take over a huge hog operation in Southern Wisconsin. Feeling God's direction, they accepted the offer. This endeavor has branched into mechanics, carpentry, electrical, and construction work for Chad and he loves it! Jan works as an RN in Rockford.
Chad, Jan and their family have been attending Harvest since August of 2012. They have served in Harvest Kids, as greeters, and have been Life Group Leaders for the past 4 years. Chad's passion is to study the Word of God and to be able to share it with others, promoting growth in the lives around him. Chad's hobbies are hunting and hunting!
