OUR TEAM

 

LEAD PASTOR

Tom Conant
 
“BUT GOD, who is rich in mercy for His great love with which He loved us, even while we were dead in sin, has made us alive together with Christ, by grace you have been saved.” Ephesians 2:4-5
 
“This is my favorite verse because it so vividly describes where I was and what God did for me. My life was a disaster going nowhere, BUT GOD!
 
After 23 years in the U.S. Navy, I retired in 1991, and moved into vocational ministry. I am married to the love of my life, Lilia, and have three children and five adorable grandchildren. I have served as Lead Pastor at Christian Chapel since 1995. As Lead Pastor, my vision is to lead CCAG to grow through loving people so they come to faith in Jesus Christ and then grow closer to Him every day. I sincerely want to know you and your family personally and to help you connect with your life calling and ministry in the body of Christ.” ~Tom

MISSIONS PASTOR

Mike Davidson
Matthew 28:18-20
 
These scriptures clearly communicate the agenda of Jesus’ followers. That is to be involved in “Making Jesus Known” to all peoples. Here at Christian Chapel, we embrace our part in obeying Jesus through Intentional Missions strategies; through partnering with those serving here locally, regionally, nationally and globally. Christian Chapel has a very long history of investing itself in fulfilling Christ’s agenda.
 
I invite you to consider teaming with us either through praying for Missionaries, giving to the many effective/fruitful works, or perhaps participating in a short term missions trip – here or around the world. By His Grace, ~Mike
 
Mike and Amy have been married since 1988 and have been a part of missions for over 20 years. They have one son, David.
 

LIFE GROUPS PASTOR

Cheryl Pickford
 
“They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, ‘The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him’.” Psalm 92:14-15
 
“My husband Steve and I both grew up in Michigan and met while in college. We married in 1977 and raised two children, while Steve’s career moved us around the country. We faithfully attended church throughout our marriage and served in lay ministry, but it was not until the age of 38 that my relationship with Jesus moved to a personal one instead of works-based. God led us to the Assemblies of God in 1999 and it was there that I received the call to Pastoral Ministry. I have had the privilege to serve on pastoral teams in Michigan, Tennessee, and now Virginia.
 
I joined the staff of Christian Chapel in January of 2014 as Small Groups Pastor. My role is to assist believers as they deepen their walk with Jesus while developing friendships and building community through sermon based small groups. I love encouraging people in their walk with Our Lord, helping them grow deeper in their relationship with Him and one another, and strengthening their marriages and families.” ~ Cheryl
