Pastor Ed Chapman
Ed Chapman and his wife, Christy pastor Living Hope Outreach and Hope House in Hamilton, Texas.
He was saved and received the infilling of the Holy Spirit when he was only eight years old, at the Church of God, in San Angelo, Texas. He served God the best he knew, as a child. At 15, he was cleaning his pick-up truck one day and felt God telling him he was called to preach. He was so excited and ran into the house and told his mom and dad, "Hey, I'm called to preach!" His parents both said, "we know," and so he went back out to finish what he was doing. He preached his first sermon when he was 18.
He met the love of his life, Christy, and married her at 19. Christy and Ed served in many areas of the ministry including: Praise and Worship, Youth Leaders, Sunday School, and Children's Church leaders. In 2008, at 37 years of age, He began to Pastor Living Hope Outreach. God has poured out His blessing on this ministry since day one. The church has expanded three times, and again, need a bigger building!
It has always been his vision to lead people to Christ, help those in need, and disciple them to go out and do the same.
James 1:27 KJV
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
