NEWCOV TEAM

Pastors

SCOTT BORMAN

Lead Pastor

I’m Pastor Scott, Lead Pastor at New Covenant Community Church. I began my ministry here as a volunteer Jr. High Director and ran the set team in the infant stages of the church. Since 1987 I have held every position imaginable, except in women’s ministry.

My wife Katie and I have been married for 33 years, and we started attending NewCov during our dating years. We have 3 grown children: Tyler, Ryan (his wife Mattie), and Kyndel.

In my free time I enjoy fishing, golfing, and hanging out with friends and family.

MIKE CHASTAIN

Care Pastor

I grew up in Avenal, CA. I attended West Hills Community College and Fresno Pacific University. I joined NewCov in 1999 after serving as the Young Adult Pastor at Peoples Church here in Fresno. While serving there, I was blessed to lead mission trips to Bosnia, Germany, Mexico, and Russia.

I love to run and ride the spin bike. On most Saturday mornings you can find me and my wife, Kristy, out at Woodward park running with their friends. Most of all, I love spending time with my wife and best friend, Kristy.

Don’t be surprised if you spot me at a local Starbucks enjoying a cup of dark roast coffee and visiting with friends. My wife Kristy and I have been married since March of 2000, and have 2 grown children: Boyce and Rebekah, and 1 terrific grandson, Boyce.

CHIP HENDERSON

Pastor of Kids & Preteens

Hey y’all. My wife, Tara Jo and I have been ministering at NewCov since 2009 in various roles throughout the Family Ministry world. Mostly as the Kids and Preteen Pastor. We have 3 teenage boys, who all have chosen to follow Jesus: Miles, Ty and Eli.

I have the privilege of getting to do a lot of public speaking at both camps for preteens, as well as, conferences throughout the United States as a representative of a great organization called fourfivesix.org.

While I get paid to do what I love, Tara Jo, is known as the girl whisper, despite having three boys, because she is one of the wisest mentors for young girls on the planet!

TODD ANDERSON

Worship Pastor

I have been on staff with NewCov since 2018, and in pastoral ministry since 1995. I’m married to Melanie, and have 3 daughters! I graduated of Rockbridge Seminary. I enjoy spending time on the beach with my family, and riding my mountain bike wherever the trails will take me!

JARED CARL

Connections Pastor

Hey! I married my beautiful Wife Karissa in September of 2016. In May of 2020 we welcomed our firstborn son, Jack, into the world. We love spending time at the coast or in the mountains. I’ve been in ministry since 2012 and my first 9 years were spent in Student Ministry. In July of 2021, God brought me to NewCov to serve the Young Adults, Connect Groups, and Partnership ministries. We are thrilled to be a part of the NewCov family!

RON KILLIAN

Adult Ministries Pastor

After serving 8 years active duty in the military, and obtaining my B.A. in Pastoral Ministry, I pastored in Eugene, Oregon before God led me to Fresno in 2004. My wife, Karen, and I are a blended family… I have four daughters and she has four sons (I already know what you’re thinking LOL!). We also have five grandchildren.  I have been a part of NewCov’s staff since 2021 and I have to say, “I love the people of this church!”

JOSH MANNING

Student Ministries Pastor

Hey everyone! I’ve been serving as the Student Ministries Pastor here at NewCov since 2018. My favorite part of working with students is having a front row seat to all God is doing in their lives. In my spare time, I love to hunt and surf. My beautiful wife, Brynn, and I just married in October 2021, and we’re excited to grow our family with two pups Asher and Rooster.
