Pastor Chad Richardson has a wide range of ministry experience as worship pastor, youth pastor, associate pastor, pastor, and many other things in between, serving with churches in Louisiana, Texas, and as far away as Alaska. He is no stranger to Celebration Church, as he has been both an attendee and a previous staff member. Growing up in a ministry family, he learned about Jesus from birth, and at age 8, he came to know Jesus Christ as Savior, but it wasn’t until his early 20’s before he understood Jesus as Lord. He became Mandeville/Covington Campus Pastor in November 2019 and is joined by his lovely wife, Dawn. He has 3 daughters, Victoria, Brittany, and Jamie, as well as 1 granddaughter, Aurora, and 1 mighty hunting dog BEAR (the mighty Yorkie/Poo).
