The People of R & R Ranch

 

John Chapmanhas been in ministry since 1986, working primarily in the fields of Youth and Music. He is a licensed and ordained minister. John resigned from Wynne Chapel over four years ago (7/06) to begin work on the SPRING Student Center in Willcox which is now completing it's fourth year of operation. John has a Bachelor of Music Education and a Masters Degree in Music from the University of Louisville. This fall (August 2011) he will be taking on the position of Director of Bands at the Willcox Middle School and High School. It will provide yet another point of impact into the lives of the young people in our town. John and Sharon have been married for 24 years and have 2 sons, Aaron, age 35, in Seattle, Washington and Joshua, age 31, in Queens, New York. Check out Josh's new website (as of 6/14/10) Josh Chapman Studios.

John's five years as the Associate Pastor at Wynne Chapel included working with the Youth, leading worship in the 8:00 a.m. service with "Reflection" and filling in for the senior pastor when needed. He enjoys songwriting, produces the recordings for “Reflection,” works with sound systems, enjoys graphic design and web site development. But most importantly he enjoys working for the Lord. In 2006 he went on a 2 week mission trip to Ecuador where they built a church and erected a portable chapel. In April/May of 2008, August/September 2009, and Januuary/February of 2011 he returned to Riobamba, Ecuador to work on a district center for the area churches. He is a member of the Christian Motorcycle Association as well as Bikers for Christ.

John wrote a daily devotional, called the WORD, for two and a half years which he published on 6 websites including our own blog, but has pared that down to a weekly project. He is currently working on expanding the SPRING Student Center ministry in the area we live and involving area churches and young people to carry the work on. The SPRING serves kids between the ages of 12 and 19. John is the founder and President of R & R Ranch.
