My name is Ryan Chapman and I am 22 years old. I accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of my life when I was 10 years old, on May 25, 2005, and I was baptized on June 2, 2013. I am from Kodak, Tennessee, and I graduated from Sevier County High School on May 28, 2013. The name of my home church is Paw Paw Hollow Baptist Church, which is where I grew in the grace and truth of our Lord Jesus Christ. I announced my call to preach on March 30, 2015 and began school at Clear Creek Baptist Bible College in August 2015. I am so excited to be a part of the Great Commission Project. I am thankful for the opportunity to preach at your church. God bless you.
My name is Cody Simpkins and I am a part of this semesters Great Commission Project Team. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior when I was in the eleventh grade. I continue to be active in my church and grow in knowledge under the leadership of my pastor. I was called into the ministry after high school, after starting my career in the United States Marine Corps. My pastor told me about Clear Creek Baptist Bible College. After being here for a year I still feel called into youth ministry and I am currently a campus coach for First Priority. I look forward to being able to serve local churches as well as worship with them.
My name is Jared Styles and this is my first semester at Clear Creek. I grew up in the suburbs of Gallatin, TN under the guidance of a God-fearing mother and father. Although I knew the Bible stories and the plan of salvation backwards and forwards, it took twenty-five years for that head knowledge to become heart knowledge. In 2015, God had impressed on me the need of salvation and I accepted Christ. My life has never been the same since. The next year, at our church’s Bible conference, God impressed on my heart a call to the ministry. After visiting Clear Creek Baptist Bible College, God showed me that this was where I needed to prepare for ministry. I am currently in my first semester, and God has grown me so much and in many different areas. I am thankful to be a part of the Great Commission Project this semester.
My name is Joshua Kerr and I am a senior at Clear Creek. I am originally from Kingsport, TN. I grew up in church and was saved at an early age. At Vacation Bible School, in the summer of 2000, I gave my life to Christ. In 2001, a year after my salvation, my Dad began to take me with him onto the mission field. My senior year in High School I worked and interned with a group called Crosspoint International Ministries. I spent six weeks in Nicaragua and was able to preach for the first time. At that time, I felt the Lord call me into ministry. I am currently pursuing my Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Ministry at Clear Creek and will graduate in May.
