Student Ministries Pastor Chad Englund

Chad Englund

Student Ministries Pastor

Chad Englund came on board in June of 2011 as the Student Ministries Pastor with a passion for teens, and seeing teens Love God, Love Others, and Serve the World.  

Chad graduated from the University of Northwestern-St. Paul and Bethel Seminary and served as Youth Pastor at Princeton Evangelical Free Church for ten years.

Chad connects with the students in many ways, even having lunches with them at their school.  (He reports that the food isn’t bad)

Chad teaches one Bible Class at Park Christian School in Moorhead, MN.  He is the Student Ministry Mobilizer for the Northern Plains District of the Evangelical Free Church.  He also serves on the National Student Reach Team of the Evangelical Free Church. 

Chad’s desire as Student Ministries Pastor is to reach students and invite them to the Wednesday Night Service, disciple them with the Wednesday night program, small group study, extra-curricular events, retreats, conferences and ministry teams, and then send them out into the world as ambassadors for Christ.  

Chad and his wife Nikki have five children.  They enjoy watching them participate in sports, concerts, and plays.  He enjoys reading, playing sports (tennis is his main sport), camping with the family, and biking and hanging out in Detroit Lakes. He also is an avid fan of the Minnesota Vikings, Timberwolves, Twins and Gophers. 

His greatest discovery since coming to the Fargo-Moorhead Area has been Tutti Frutti. It’s turned into a small addiction that he will be seeking help for.
