Stroudwater Christian Church Leadership
Stroudwater Christian Church is blessed to have a leadership team who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will. Following are brief bio's of our leadership team and their qualifications for ministry.
Tom has 41 years of pastoral and ministry experience. He assumed the position of interim pastor in May 2020 when our pastor of 30 years, Dr. Bill Chadwick, was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident. Tom & Debby Peers live and Portland and have two grown children, each with their own families (Rochester, NY and Houston, TX). Our Pastoral Search Team is in the process of securing our next senior pastor for Stroudwater Christian Church.
In Memorial: Dr. William Chadwick
Pastor Bill encourages our church through his Leadership, spiritual vitality, and teaching ministry. He has the heart of an evangelist and is passionate about reaching people for Christ both here at home, and at our sister church in Guatemala. An author, scholar, and student of the Word, his PowerPoint Sermons are filled with meaningful insights to help us live our faith. He and his bride of thirty two years, Carol, live in Gorham. We lost Bill tragically on May 2, 2020 in a motorcycle accident. We mourn the loss of Bill Chadwick but we know God has big plans for Stroudwater Christian Church.
Financial transparency is important to us at Stroudwater. We strive to invest your support of this ministry in effective ways that honor the intent of the giver and the LORD. Jean helps us manage your kingdom investments making sure that all funds are accounted for and that we have maintained the high standards in financial reporting and accountability. Jean has a wonderful philosophy of empowering the work of the church while protecting the stability of our finances. She and her husband Chad have two children.
