About My Family

We are the Richardson family—Chad, Dawn and Jamie. We have two adult daughters, Victoria and Brittany, and one granddaughter, Aurora.

God has been gracious to us by allowing us to come back to where it all began for Dawn and me as high-school sweethearts.

About My Church Plant

We are a church plant of Celebration Church, which is a multi-site church in Metairie, La. We believe everyone needs Jesus, and we have brought the saving message of Jesus to the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain. We are a cell-based church, which means our primary mode of ministry takes place through small groups.

We desire to see a total transformation of people moving from religion to relationship with Jesus, as many in our area are very religious (very high rate of Catholicism).

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.


Pray for my family as we work together in ministry. Pray the church will be established and will faithfully work to plant in other communities, too. Pray the Lord brings leaders who can help within the church. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy.


Build relationships with a church planter, team members and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Learn birthdays and anniversaries, so you can send gifts and cards.
Learn the church plant, its strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a church planter financially.
