Pastor Chad Hammond
Pastor Chad and his family joined August 2016 and have been getting to know the church and community. Here is a bit of who he is and his experiences in his own words:
"I came to trust in Jesus for my salvation at the age of 6 at the direction of my mother June Hammond. After coming home from Sunday School one Sunday I started asking my mom questions about the lesson, which was the story of the rescue of the Israelites from Egypt. My mom explained that God sent Jesus to rescue me from my sin and provide forgiveness through his death and resurrection. I prayed with her and accepted Christ by my parents bed that night. While in high school I saw God use me in the lives of many of my friends. It was during this time that I felt God's call to ministry.
"Earlier in life I spent significant time working and living in both Germany and Israel. This helped me learn how to work and minister to people from different cultures and backgrounds.
"I have had several wonderful experiences that have helped prepare me for ministry. I taught Sunday School at Bethany Community Church in Seattle for several years. In those years I also worked as a Security Officer at Seattle Children's Hospital. This experience allowed me to be with families experiencing significant trauma and loss and increased my ability to care for those in crisis. Through this job I also gained significant knowledge of the medical system enabling me to better advocate for people in the church who are struggling with physical or mental illness."
It's been great having Pastor Chad among us. Currently he is leading the Tuesday Adventure Club this Summer. This Fall his focus will continue to be on Family and Children's ministries. He volunteers in a mentoring program at the Sumas Grade School and is seeking to bless the staff and children. Several folks from SACC are volunteering in the school. Pastor Chad will also be coaching the Nooksack Valley Junior High Football team this Fall. In the Church he'll continue being the superintendent of the Sunday School and is also determining a few other ways to be involved. Pastor Chad preaches about once a month or so. Continue to pray for the ministry of Pastor Chad in the Church family and the Nooksack Valley Community.
