Personally, Dr. Chapell taught me how to preach Christ from every text. He took personal time to address areas I needed to work on and has continued to encourage me throughout these nine years since graduating from Covenant. This past Spring he came to preach at Redeemer and I enjoyed some personal time with him. His handling of the Word coupled with a pastor's heart is a worthy model for all pastors. Praise God for Him.
Tonight was the closing worship service for the 35th General Assembly of the PCA and Dr. Chapell preached a powerful sermon on Ephesians 1:18-23. If you have some time, view his sermon at this link. Scroll all the way down to the end, you'll have to click on the "Worship Service" at 7:30pm and forward to the 39 minute mark when Dr. Chapell begins to preach (although the entire service was wonderful). Check it out.
Chapell's view of the church victorious in this sermon exactly mirrors mine.
There have been great and glorious days of the gospel in this land; but they have been small in comparison of what shall be. -James Renwick
