Our Pastor

In 2018, God brought Pastor Chad Hussey and his wife Dandi to ARISE to lead our church through a historic revitalization and, today,  God is busy doing an amazing new work in our midst!  Prior to ARISE, Chad served as an interim preaching pastor for Church on the Rock Katy’s English language ministry in Houston, TX.  Chad graduated from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY with a Master of Divinity specializing in Theology and Apologetics.

The Hussey’s have three children, Sky (11), Dylan (9), and Seven (4). Chad comes from a family with a long history of pastors, dating back to 1560, with at least one pastor in every generation for the past 330 years.  Dandi is ARISE’s Director of Women’s and Children’s Ministries and earned an Advanced Certificate of Ministry Studies from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Wives Institute.

Chad and Dandi’s vision is to see our church become a great blessing to our community – to see us be a humble and loving people that recognize we have been granted every blessing in Jesus Christ.  With a renewed spiritual vitality, a heart for local outreach, and love for our community we welcome all people from all walks – with open arms – to find healing in Jesus Christ and to use their gifts for the glory of God!
