Chip Sneed - Pastor

Chip is a native of North Carolina growing up mostly in the communities of Winston-Salem and Madison, North Carolina. Chip is married to Tina and they have three children they love dearly: Chipper, Samuel, and Laura Elizabeth.

Chip has always had a special love for the outdoors and sharing wild spaces with good friends. Most of his days outdoors are spent fly fishing or whitewater kayaking in the rivers and creeks of Western North Carolina.

Chip graduated from Erskine Seminary in 1997 and was ordained as a teaching elder in the PCA in 1998. In 2002 Chip and his family moved to the community of Lake Norman to plant NorthCross Church. What he loves most about his job is walking with people through struggle and helping them find the tenderness of God’s acceptance in Jesus.
