Chad & Lindsay Garrison

Chad & Lindsay Garrison serve as the Lead Pastors at Springs of Life Church. Chad and Lindsay have a passion to see people be restored to wholeness through Jesus Christ, and become followers who walk in His Ways through their journeys. Prior to coming to serve in Cedar Rapids, they have served in ministry in Nevada and Indiana in various roles such as youth pastor, multimedia director, executive pastor, senior pastor and most recently as church planters in Indianapolis. Chad also served in leadership in the Heartland District of the Foursquare Church for 10 years as NextGen Director, and Communications Director. Lindsay is also a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and together they formed Odyssey Haven Coaching and Counseling.

Chad and Lindsay have been married since 2004 and are the parents to Adelaide, Eleanor and Caedmon. They love time with the family, being outdoors, coffee shops, sports, most geek things (that’s Chad), Hallmark Movies (that’s Lindsay), spending time with friends, investing in, and empowering leaders and walking with people as they discover Who Jesus is and how He beckons us all to follow Him.
