Worship Leaders:

Jerry Chapman

I’ve been a professional musician for the entirety of my adult life. I’ve played shows in 46 states & 3 countries. I’ve written hundreds of songs (at least 20% of them are good) and have released 14 albums, both solo and with various bands. I’m equally comfortable playing music by the Beatles, Chris Tomlin, KISS, Hillsong & the Rolling Stones. I’m currently worship leader for two Methodist churches in Winston-Salem, NC.I live in Mount Airy, NC with my wife, Jennifer, and my 2 crazy awesome kids, Georgia (16) & Matthew (14). I play acoustic & electric guitars, bass guitar, harmonica, percussion, mandolin, ukulele, and bad piano. And I sing too.



I’m a Presbyterian pastor currently serving a great congregation in Charlotte, NC. I’m also a musician/songwriter and have served as a songleader for various retreats and conferences for the past twenty years. I am thoroughly ensconced in Presbyterian-ness with degrees from the Presbyterian School of Christian Education (M.A.C.E.), Columbia Theological Seminary (M.Div), and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary (D.Min). I’m husband to Lorie and chauffeur to our two boys, Connor and Hunter. I play piano, guitar and bass primarily, and I sing. I can fake a few other instruments as needed.
