Brett has served as an elder at Ascension since October 2016. He currently serves as Treasurer while he is on sabbatical. Prior to joining Ascension, Brett served as a ruling elder in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. Brett and his wife Elizabeth live in Lake Forest Park with their two teenage sons and their two bulldogs (one French and one English). The Chases are originally from Wisconsin and have spent the past twelve years living in Arizona, California, and of late Washington. Though not a Jus Divinum Presbyterian, Brett does value the pastoral care that results from faithful Presbyterian polity, and he is zealous for the spirituality of the Church — a biblical truth and Presbyterian distinctive that equips Christians to glorify the Father by advancing Christ’s kingdom in the power of the Holy Spirit.
