I am incredibly grateful to have had the privilege of planting Living Well Church in 2007. I am married to Karen and we have been in the ministry since June 1984. Karen and I have three daughters who are a delight. Carmen our oldest is married to Jared and has two daughters, Charlotte and Maisy ,and she helps lead worship every Sunday. Holly works as an RN nurse and helps with worship. Taylor our youngest is in Middle School and wants to be a teacher.

We have but one desire that our family carry the gospel to the next generation and they leave their mark for God.

Worship Pastor- Paul Beck


Care Pastor - Steve Roberson


Discipleship Pastor - Todd W. Sutphin


Born and raised right here in Salem, VA which I have called home for many, many years. Several years ago, I accepted a call into the ministry. Let me tell you – it has been one CRAZY but FUN and ADVENTUROUS journey that isn’t over! I love seeing people come to know Jesus Christ as well as helping them grow and mature spiritually.

My family and I desire to serve and obey God with all our hearts, souls and minds. My wife Angela and I have three sons: Wilton, MacGreggor and Isaac. We love children and thank God for His blessings. We love being outdoors in God’s creation – camping, fishing and having fun.

Youth Pastor - Chad Forte


Hi! Thanks for taking the time to read a little bit about me. I am blessed to have the coolest job in the world, youth pastor at living well. I am originally from South Florida. Things I love are watching movies, fishing, and hanging out with teens. Youth ministry is more than a job to me. I am blessed that I was called into ministry at the young age of 13! I am now 33 and my goal is still the same, to encourage others to know and walk with Jesus. He is the one we are all looking for! My prayer is that God would use me to help others find him, especially teens. I am also blessed to have a beautiful family. I have two adopted children Christopher, Kaylee, and my beautiful wife Esther. Feel free to connect with me on Facebook!
