MEET OUR TEAM
LEAD PASTOR - Chad Pumpelly
Pastor Chad is passionate about crossing the lines of diversity and bringing people together - unifying them toward the common vision of knowing and serving the living God. His passion overflows into other areas where it would be a close tie between his love of bird-watching and his overwhelming desire to tell yet another awful "dad" joke from his endless repertoire (and we do mean endless). Don't let all the degrees, years of international experience in the mission field, and determined vision for the church fool you- Pastor Chad is a fun-loving Buckeye fan who is just as comfortable surfing around on a ripstik as he is preaching a sermon. His fresh, relatable approach to those around him is one of the many reasons we appreciate his leadership.

YOUTH & WORSHIP DIRECTOR - Everett Tye
Everett is responding to God's calling into the ministry. A youth pastor profoundly impacted Everett's life, and it was this mentoring he experienced that produced in him a passion for youth ministry. Everett believes young adults are at life's crossroads, where they begin to decide what their faith means.
Everett comes to The Crossing from Cedarville University, where he will graduate this fall with a BA in Biblical Studies. Along with his formal degree, Everett brings valuable experience in worship leading, teaching, camp counseling, and event management. He is excited to put those skills to work as he begins leading.
In his free time, Everett loves hiking, fishing, movies, video games, and playing any instrument he can find.
Everett can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
OFFICE MANAGER - Bethany Chong
Bethany comes from Southwestern Ohio and recently moved to Delaware County after graduating from Ohio Christian University. She is a member of Maize Road Baptist Church, one of our sister churches in Columbus, where her husband Mark serves as an Associate Pastor. As the Office Manager, Bethany loves getting to serve the church by furthering its ministries behind the scenes. She juggles church communication, social media, and other day-to-day tasks.
In her free time, Bethany loves hiking, scrapbooking, and playing endless games of fetch with her two German Shepherds.
Bethany can be reached at email@example.com.
