He graduated in 2000 summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. Afterwards, he studied at The Masterís Seminary, also graduating with high honors in 2003 with the degree of Master of Divinity.
While in seminary, Chips was introduced to his future wife, Christchanna, through some mutual good friends. The couple was married by Christchannaís father in June of 2003. God has blessed them with three beautiful girls: Abigail, born in 2005, Hannah born in 2007, and Sarah, born in 2011; their son, Isaiah was born in September 2013.
When heís not preparing or delivering sermons, Pastor Chips enjoys sports, especially baseball and basketball, reading, and spending time with his family. He also serves as the editor of The CARBC Messenger, a bi-monthly newsletter that serves churches in the CARBC.
