Chip Freed

Lead Pastor

Chip's joy is seeing new people come to faith, and he calls Garfield Memorial a place that "reflects the kingdom of God in its diversity and a place of sheer grace!"


Chip is a highly sought after preacher and speaker. He has been keynote speaker at some of the major gatherings in The United Methodist Church; as well as other larger church gatherings, such as appearing several times on the national broadcast Real Life from Riverbend Church in Austin, Texas.


Prior to entering the ministry, Chip was a CEO in the corporate community, serving as President and General Manager of Mahoning Municipal Products, Inc.


Pastor Chip is married to "his best friend," Terri, and has three children.


Here's a LINK to an article from Outreach Magazine about how Garfield Memorial transitioned to "Living Color.”
