Bishop Greg Copley, Lead Pastor has a distinguished and illustrious ministerial past evidenced by the favor of God upon that which Pastor Greg has become involved in.
Pastor Greg was initiated into ministry vicariously through observing his father lovingly shepherd his flock in West Virginia, nevertheless, he was called into full-time ministry in 1984 and has served in local and National Leadership roles in North & South Dakota, Montana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Texas and most recently in South Carolina.
Although growing up as a "preacher's kid", Bishop Copley grew up believing he would be going down a different path. He graduated first in his class, became a Master Electrician and founded a very successful business with multiple employees; however God had different plans and called him to full-time ministry shortly after serving in corporate America for just a few years.
Now he counts it the greatest privilege to serve as the Lead Pastor of Chesapeake Christian Center. He thrives on working together with the body of Christ to truly make a difference in the lives of people.
He is married to his beautiful wife, Becky, and has two married children, Tony and Jeremy, which serve the Lord passionately.
He would love the opportunity to meet you. Please say 'hello' when you come to visit!
