Chad West used to be a pastor. When that life fell apart, he loaded the few possessions he cared about into the back seat of his car, gave away or burned the rest, and drove off to start over with no real plan except to follow his heart.

Join Chad on Steve Brown, Etc. to hear his story and get a sneak peek into his upcoming Key Life/New Growth Press book, The Lies We Live. If you're wishing you had the faith for a fresh start in 2017, Chad's story will either inspire you or really freak you out.

Chad is the anti-social social media guy for Key Life. In addition to being a former pastor, Chad has a masters degree in clinical mental health counseling and he's the author of the science fiction book, Fade. Hang out with him online at and check out Chad's author page at
