About

Chad Lister is a 24 year old worship leader from Raleigh, NC. He is currently enrolled and finishing up his degree at The College at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. While attending Southeastern, he met his wife Ms. Gia Gandolfo. Gia is from Central Florida and is studying counseling at SEBTS. Chad and Gia got married September 8th of last year.

Chad has been playing music since he was 5, when beginning piano lessons. He began learning guitar and playing in musical worship at the age of 12. Through the past 12 years, God has woven these following things into Chad's heart that have become the foundation of his ministry: the love of music and excellence to the glory of God, understanding & sharing the gravity and hope of the gospel, a passion for believers to engage with God through musical worship, and a calling to encourage & serve the local church, the bride of Christ. God has shown His faithfulness time and time again for Chad to have the opportunity to do solo events while also traveling and playing with a band.

God has afforded many opportunities for the band over the years including opening up for Shane&Shane, Shaun Groves, BarlowGirl, BigDaddyWeave and MercyMe. He also had the privilege of traveling with Dr. Alvin Reid for about 9 years doing conferences, D-Nows and many camps as well.  Aside from traveling, Chad is on staff as the Production Director & Worship Leader at Richland Creek Community Church, his home church in the North Raleigh/ Wake Forest area in NC. Chad leads weekly there for the Sunday Morning Contemporary Services.  From smaller acoustic events, D-Now weekends, concerts, to full out Summer Camps, Chad and the band have the same heart: Sharing the hope of Christ, helping people engage with God, and giving Him all the glory.
