Chadwick came to Eastpointe in 2001 with a Bachelor's degree from Kentucky Christian University. He was the Worship Minister at Eastpointe for nearly 7 years and Associate Minister after that. In May 2010, Chadwick became the Senior Minister at the church. He oversees the preaching, church staff, and—along with the other elders—directs and communicates the vision for our church.
In 2001, Chadwick married his high school sweetheart, Nicole, who is a vital help in his ministry roles. In 2005, their beautiful daughter, Grace Louise, was born. If you're looking to strike up a conversation with Chadwick, you'll never go wrong talking about all things Apple (iPhones, iPads, and Macs) or the Minnesota Vikings, his favorite football team. (No, he's not from Minnesota.)
Adam has been on the ministry staff since July 2007 but has been attending Eastpointe his whole life. Graduating in 2004 from Otterbein College with a degree in Sociology and minor in Psychology, his education appropriately took him into the field of... auditing (who really works with their degree?!?!). When the opportunity arose to serve at his home church as the Youth Minister overseeing 6th-12th grade, he simply couldn't resist (kid at heart!).
He and his wife Shannon live in Pataskala with their daughter, Lilly and son Cameron. Adam enjoys Jeopardy, sports, hot sauce, Swedish Fish, motorcycles and Michigan football! He does not enjoy the back and forth of Ohio weather, uneven patio pavers, roller coasters that are always under maintenance, and he is most definitely afraid of birds!!!
Scott was recruited as the Worship Minister at Eastpointe in June 2013. He has been called to serve God in many ways through his life: he has been a counselor, science teacher, student worship leader, and a church planter. He is passionate about creating environments where people can worship God openly and honestly through the arts. Scott enjoys reading, backpacking, studying tai chi & kung fu, and of course playing the guitar and singing!
He is married to his best friend, Holly, and has two amazing daughters, Ruby & Lydia, whom he loves making laugh as much as possible. He enjoys a wide range of music - from Motown to Metal - and when he's not listening to Praise & Worship you're likely find him rocking out to Incubus (air guitar, drums, & bass included). His favorite (non-metal) 80's song is "Head Over Heels" by Tears for Fears.
Laura became Eastpointe's Office Administrator in October 2012 after working at Starbucks for many years. She has a Bachelor's degree in Organizational Communication from Ohio University and is currently attending the University of Dayton for a Masters in Clinical Counseling. At Eastpointe, Laura serves as the office receptionist, maintains the church calendar, and creates weekly bulletins and Eastpointe's monthly newsletter. Laura loves meeting new people and answering any questions you have about Eastpointe!
Laura has been attending Eastpointe with her family since she was a young girl, and has been involved in the music ministry for many years. When she's not creating bulletins or playing music, she can be found cooking, playing with Louie the cat (yes, she likes cats), watching episodes of MST3K, and drinking lots of coffee.
