Meet the Speakers:  Chad and Jessica Troup

Chad and Jessica met in high school when he was 15 and she was 14.  They have been together ever since.  After college, they got married at the ages of 21 and 20.  Both started work in the hospital field, Chad working as a hospital lab technician and Jess working in the hospital imaging department.  Chad felt a call into the ministry his senior year in high school but did not answer the call.  Both were always active in church and service projects, even when their family began to grow.  After 7 years of working in the lab, Chad once again felt a strong call into pastoral ministry, but this time answered the call.  He resigned his position at the hospital on Christmas Eve and began going back to college at then Warner Southern College.  He graduated in 18 months and immediately after graduation became the senior pastor of the Kane First Church of God and has been there for 8 years.  Their family continued to grow, as they have 5 children; Wyatt, Wynter, Tytus, Cyrus, and Vyolette.  They claim that they “thrive in chaos” with both working full time and schedules full of children’s activities.  They have proved that high school sweethearts do exist and can thrive and grow with several things learned along the way.  Most importantly, they have learned that love can last, especially with a healthy dose of grace and mercy and a whole lot of laughter!
