Pastor C Elsbury Chappell

By way of background, Rev. Chappell has spent most of his over 50-year career in the ministry in the southern Virginia (Portsmouth) area and earlier in North Carolina.  He ministered to numerous churches in that area, and has also served as a hospital chaplain, nursing home chaplain, and hospice chaplain during portions of his career.  After the death of his beloved wife in 2019, and the hardship of living without her during Covid, he decided he needed to move closer to his family.  He moved to Frederick in September of 2021, to be near his son, daughter, 15 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.    He knows the needs of our church and has demonstrated the desire and energy to pastor this congregation.
