THE YOUTH MINISTER
Timothy Chapman received a MDiv from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis. He was the CSMSG youth ministry intern for three years before becoming Youth Minister in 2016. In addition to four high school mission trips with CSMSG, he has been on mission trips to Bulgaria and Thailand. He enjoys coffee, music, and teaching students the connections between liturgy, faith, and daily life. He wishes he had more time to read, and he’s very opinionated about St. Louis’s excellent coffee shop scene. He can be reached at 314.721.1502, #4023 or by email.
The Youth PROGRAM Coordinator
Marty Chapman has been working with the Youth Ministry at CSMSG for many years. Her involvement was fueled by her wish for an inviting youth community her children could join once they graduated from CSMSG’s Children’s Sunday School program. Under Marty’s direction, the Youth Ministry has expanded manifold, and has grown to feature activities such as retreats, local and national summer mission trips, Bible studies, and much more. Marty’s favorite part of the program is witnessing youth participants mature as they progress from the sixth grade through high school. Marty can be reached at 314.721.1502, #4024 or by email.
