Global Outreach at The Chapel
The Chapel is committed to growing committed followers of Jesus Christ, both locally and globally; and to compassionately caring for those in need. To do that, we partner with the following workers and ministries to help each continue their respective outreaches.
Although it is our desire to provide complete information about each, in some cases it is in their best interest to limit what we share. Thank you for your understanding. If you would like more information on any of the workers below, please pick up a copy of our Missions Directory in the church foyer.
