Chad Haygood

Senior Pastor

Chad, along with his family, moved from Alabama to Nebraska in August of 2009 to help lead our newly begun church. Chad is a native of Alabama and received his bachelor's degree from the University of North Alabama in 2004. After serving as a missionary in Peru in 2005, he returned to Alabama to serve on staff at his home church, Grace Life Church of the Shoals.

During his time on staff, God began to increase a burden within him for pastoral ministry. After developing a relationship with a new church plant in Hastings, God began to make it clear where He was leading. Shortly after Grace Life Fellowship extended an offer, Chad accepted the opportunity to serve them as Senior Pastor.

Chad is currently pursing a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies from Reformed Theological Seminary. He enjoys most sports. Although he loves college football, don't mistake him for a Cornhusker - his heart is still with the Crimson Tide.

Chad and his wife Meredith have been married since 2007 and have three sons: John Andrew, Luke, and Jude.
