Chad Bogdewic is an ordained pastor in the United Methodist Church.  He was born in Hartford, CT and after his adoption was raised in Beallsville, PA, south of Pittsburgh.  He graduated from Geibel Catholic High School then earned a BS in Business Administration from California University of PA.  After college he earned a Master of Divinity from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and a Certificate in Urban Ministry from the Metro-Urban Institute located on PTS’ campus, as well.
