For over 28 years, Roger Storms has served as the lead pastor of Compass Christian Church (formerly Chandler Christian Church). Under his leadership, the church’s weekend attendance has increased from 120 to 2,600, and the church’s staff has increased from one full time employee to over 40 employees. During this time, the congregation relocated from a building they had met in for 34 years to a school and then to their present 30-acre campus with over 100,000 sq. ft. of facilities. The latest expansion is The Bridge, which houses an auditorium and state-of-the-art coffee house and a youth outreach facility that includes a café, gym, game room, skate park and climbing wall.
Roger received a Bachelor of Sacred Literature (BSL) degree from Ozark Christian College and has completed course work at California Graduate School of Theology, Cincinnati Bible Seminary and Hope International Christian Seminary. He has served on the boards of the United Christian Youth Camp, North American Christian Convention, Arizona Evangelistic Association, and Hemophilia Associations in Northern California and Oklahoma. Presently, Roger serves as a trustee of Ozark Christian College and a volunteer consultant for Project New Hope International and the Central Indian Christian Mission.
He has traveled the world doing missions work, preaching and teaching in Europe, the Middle East, India, Africa and South America. Pastor Storms and his wife of 42 years, Nancy, reside in Chandler, Arizona. Their daughter, Ashley Arp, and husband, Nathan, live nearby and have given the Storms five wonderful grandchildren. In 1996 the Storms’ son, Jeremiah, passed away at age 15. Jeremiah was born with classic factor VIII hemophilia and acquired HIV and AIDS as a result of a blood transfusion.
