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 such as his love for wilderness areas and wildlife, especially birding, hiking, and fishing. He has the occasional compulsion to tell awful "dad" jokes from an endless repertoire. 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.

ASSOCIATE PASTOR - 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 graduated with a bachelors in Biblical Studies as well as a minor in Youth Ministry. He is currently pursuing a Masters in biblical leadership. He expects to finish his Masters studies in the fall of 2024.
In his free time, Everett loves hiking, fishing, movies, video games, and playing any instrument he can find.
