About our Guest Speaker
Geoff Chapman

Geoff turned to Christ in the 1960’s amid tremendous social turmoil. After college he entered seminary and finished his degree work at Trinity in Pittsburgh. As a young priest, he found himself  in the midst of a powerful charismatic renewal in Bath, Ohio. He has since pastored 5 churches and, in 2008, stood up to the sharp challenge of leaving the Episcopal Church to join the Anglican Communion. He is married to Becca. They have 6 children and 17 grandchildren. He is recently retired from St. Stephen’s in Pittsburgh where he continues to pursue his love of mountain biking and woodworking.
