Chad Stephenson- Senior Pastor
Chad Stephenson was born and raised in Sanger, Texas and is a graduate of the Sanger High School Class of 1995. After high school, Chad attended seminary at South Western Bible Institute where he received his degree in theology. In 1998 he married his high school sweetheart, Jennifer Stephenson and in 2008, God blessed Chad and Jennifer with a precious baby girl named, Zoe.
Chad has been involved in ministry since 1989, knowing that there was a calling on his life since a very young age. He started at the tender age of 13 as the drummer for a family Christian band. It was during that time that God began to develop a love for music and a dedication to serving God with his talents. For the next 23 years, Chad would go on to sing with several professional vocal groups, and would grace some of the biggest stages that gospel music has to offer. Throughout that time of his life, God allowed him to live out his dreams.
In 2012, God began to deal with Chad's heart. Chad knew it was time to come off the road as a full-time Christian musician, so that he could be with his family and seek God for His direction. Very soon after that, God placed Chad and his wife as youth pastors at a church in Jacksboro, Texas. For the next four years, they were being prepared for what was yet to come.
On July 31, 2016, Chad was called to be the Senior Pastor of Water's Edge Fellowship. Chad says, “Me and my family are very excited to be part of a work that God has ordained. We look forward to seeing the blessings of God, as the Waters Edge Fellowship continues to progress.”
“Anticipating what God is about to do!”

Through the course of being married, God has taken her family to many different places to minister. Jennifer says, it's an honor that God would call somebody like me to be a vessel that God can use. She went on to say, that God has given her a passion to reach out to children. She said, we must train up our children with Gods word, so that when they become adults they will have a foundation to stand upon.
