We would like to introduce you to our new Music Director, Mr. John Austin Chappell. He was born on February 15, 1993 and he is from Fairmont, NC. He currently attends the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, where he is a Junior this year and is Majoring in Music Education. He loves to play the french horn as his primary instrument, but also plays the trumpet and guitar. He previously attended Centerville Baptist Church, until God called him to our church to fill the position of Music Director.
Austin dedicated his life to Jesus Christ at Hog Swamp Baptist Church in 1999 at Vacation Bible School. He believes that Jesus Christ died for all of man's sins and when He arose on the third day He was singing "It Is Finished" by Bill and Gloria Gaither. Music and the cross have been the backbone of his life. He lives by a saying from Johann Sebastian Bach, "Soli Deo Gloria", which is Latin for "To the Glory of God Alone".
