Pastor David

Lead Pastor

From as early as I can remember, the one thing I have enjoyed the most is making others shine. From the assists on the basketball court, to blocking on the football field, and coaching others to success. Secondly, I have always placed a high value on relationships and it guides me in everything I do. The result of combining both of these important values together has created a perfect place to serve as the Lead Pastor of The Chapel. My passion is to lead people into a state of timeless transformation so that they to can have deeper relationship with a living God. I have been married for 34 years to Donna and have the joy of being called dad by all of my kids. Marissa (Daughter), Darren (Son-in-law), Jordan (Son), and Kayla (daughter-in-law). Our kids have also given us four wonderful grands. So, if you want to play a round of golf, take a hike, or take in some of the best that the metro area has to give when it comes to restaurants ... let me know and we will go.

I am so excited and blessed to be a part of such a wonderful team! I have 2 children, Liam and Ezri and a wonderful and supportive Husband Chris. We have been at The Chapel for about 9 years and couldn’t imagine calling anywhere else home.

Evan Chandler

Youth Leader

I am the contact person (the dashing, daring, and digitally savvy director) for our youth department. I love the small group atmosphere on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, as well as the ridiculousness that comes about at movie nights, retreats, all-nighters, and other gatherings. When I’m not moonlighting with our youth, I spend much of my time practicing snappy comebacks with the students in my 7th grade language arts classroom. I enjoy reading (although I don’t do it as much as a language arts teacher probably should), sitting around a fire pit with close friends, traveling to places I’ve never been, and long walks on the beach.

Family Ministry Directors

Hello! We are Darren and Marissa Rice. We are the proud parents 5 beautiful children. God has given us a commissioning to follow Joshua 24:15, “As for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” Our passion to encourage our household to pursue Christ is the foundation of our family. This is why we feel so impressed upon to develop our family ministry at the Chapel core mission to be: Building Households that SERVE THE LORD! As family ministry leads we want to communicate the importance of the word HOUSEHOLDS, we believe that children play a HUGE part of households and as parents we are committed to discipline them to the Glory of God. As we mentioned though households include not just the kiddos, but also the parents, singles, marrieds, visitors in our home, those we mentor, and walk alongside in life. We are passionate about bringing all those areas into the furthering our relationship with God and the Kingdom. We are also passionate about spending time with those in our biblical community, we have an open door and LOVE to cook for people! We both enjoy music, good food, playing games, sports, and staying up late having good conversations with our friends and family! Lets connect and walk this journey together as a team!
