Wade has been in youth ministry since December of 1994 and with the Vineyard of Licking County since its inception in August of 1999. For Wade, a 15 year youth veteran, youth ministry is a God calling, not a job or responsibility. The average youth pastor last approximately 18 months according to a recent survey and Wade attributes his longevity to not taking everything too serious and that he loves working with young people. Youth ministry is not a stepping stone into other ministry for Wade.
Wade grew up in the Hebron area and is a graduate of Lakewood High School. After high school, Wade attended Ohio Northern University where he earned a B.S. in Pharmacy. He currently practices pharmacy at Read’s Pharmacy in Newark. In 2003, Wade successfully completed the Vineyard Leadership Institute and was ordained by the Vineyard of Licking County a short time later. In addition to youth ministry, Wade works with our projection ministry, drama ministry, and assists in other areas of ministry as well.
