He attended Adventist schools from elementary to college, and graduated from Southern Adventist University with a B.S. degree in Business Administration. Chad was born in Taipei, Taiwan, and has lived in several foreign countries, including Thailand, Germany, and Japan. His brother, Marc, joined the family while they were living in California.

Aside from his work in finance, Chad also has a passion for technology and its potential use in ministry. He enjoys traveling to different churches within the Conference to speak and connect with the members, learning about their needs for support and growth.
