They met at church and both attended Chi Alpha in college where they met and fell in love. After getting their bachelor’s degrees, Chantz in Music and Alyssa in Special Education, they both felt the call to ministry and left Minot to attend the Campus Missionary Internship Training program in Fargo, ND.

On a visit to Minot, both Chantz and Alyssa felt the call to come back and be the Chi Alpha directors at Minot State University. They served in Minot for 4 years until the Lord called them to join the staff at Journey Church as the worship pastor.

Chantz and Alyssa are proud parents of Zechariah, Jedidiah, Jaella, and Hadassah.
