Pastor Chad was saved when he was 15 years old. After high school, Chad joined the Army and served in both the Gulf and Iraq wars. After returning home from Iraq, Chad heard God reminding him of his call to preach the gospel. After much prayer, the Pritchett family surrendered to the ministry and moved to Ellis, KS, to serve as the senior pastor of Ellis Baptist Church in July 2013. Chad and Tricia have been married since 1991. They have 5 children, Colin, Brittany, Ryan, Lauren, and Michael. Chad and Tricia feel truly blessed to be a part of the family at Ellis Baptist Church.
