Chad Davidson

Minister of Music & Worship


Chad began serving at Friendship in August of 2011. Chad recognizes the value of genuine Christ-centered worship and is senstitive to the way music establishes the tone during corporate worship. He believes worship should prepare the hearts of the people so they can make a life-changing decision for Christ as God's Word is proclaimed. In addition to leading worship, Chad also leads our adult choir, children’s choir, and media ministry. Chad is married to Kim and they have two children – Reagan and Andrew. Chad’s favorite verse from God’s word is Isaiah 40:31, which says, "Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary."
