GLENN CHAPPELEAR is a graduate of Clemson University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He served as a youth minister for 9 years before beginning Sportsmen’s Outreach, which is a ministry designed to help churches reach outdoorsmen. He is currently a volunteer missionary with the North American Mission Board.
He is also a professional fisherman on the FLW Tour. Fishing keeps him on the road 150 days per year at tournaments, boat shows & fishing seminars. Glenn also does many speaking engagements through their ministry Sportsmen’s Outreach, such as; Sportsmen’s Banquets, Prison Ministry, Mission trips and NASCAR events. During Glenn’s time at home he teaches a Men’s Bible study group, Sunday School Class and volunteers 25 hours per month as a Cobb County Police Chaplain.
DONNA CHAPPELEAR is a professional mom of 3 children. She graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Degree in Music. She taught public school music for 11 years. When the family began having children, she and Glenn decided that Donna would stay at home to help raise the children. That led to home schooling their children for 7 years. Now all the kids are in public school and Donna spends her time running the kids around, keeping the house straight, food in the fridge, substitute teaching at the local school and tries to get a few workouts in at the gym.
MINISTRY TOGETHER How do the Chappelear’ find time to do ministry together? We make it a priority. It is never a choice if we are going to church on Sunday, we are going. Donna and Glenn teach a couple’s Sunday School class each week at church. Donna also helps in the children’s worship program at our church. They are also involved with Calvary Children’s Home, where they sponsor two of the students and support other activities there too. Another passion for the Chappelear’ is working with abandoned women and children in the Atlanta area. They routinely volunteer with 7 Bridges to Recovery to do street ministry downtown, along with helping at the local ministry headquarters. Did I mention we try to take an international mission trip each year to Mexico?
