Our Pastor
Rev. Chad Wible has served in a pastoral role since 2006, previously serving three other congregations. He grew up in the church, made a profession of faith at age nine and was baptized later that year by his grandfather, a Baptist pastor. In the church, Chad found a solid foundation and a loving, nurturing family. His calling is to serve the people of the church in a way that will help them go deeper in faith and further in living out God’s kingdom ways.Wible-family

In his younger days, Chad played a lot of soccer. After high school, he played soccer at Colorado Christian University where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems. Chad put these technical skills to work as an employee of a Fortune 50 company for nearly five years before entering seminary for graduate study.

Chad earned his Master of Divinity degree in 2005 from Denver Seminary, where he met Allison. Allison is also ordained in the ECC and works as a chaplain in two St. Louis hospitals.

When he’s not driving his kids to extracurricular activities, Chad enjoys reading. Among his favorite authors are C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, David McCullough, N.T. Wright, and Scot McKnight. For recreation, Chad enjoys hiking and camping and he is an avid baseball fan. He has also been a youth soccer coach for 15 years including four years as a high school varsity coach.
