The Rt. Rev. Craig B Chapman

The Rt. Rev. Craig B Chapman
Rector / Bishop – EACA
All Saints Parish
Ventura,CA

Born and raised in Trenton, MI. I belonged to the Episcopal Church and grew up in its Grace and Truth. I began processing a call to ministry in High School, but parked this call for secular education and worldly career ideals. I was married and am blessed by two beautiful, now fully grown, children. I attended and Graduated from The University of Michigan, BGS and Psychology/Religion. Calls don’t really go away, they must be dealt with. Sent to seminary by my Episcopal Bishop, Graduated M.Div 1987 and ordained Deacon and Priest in Episcopal Church, USA. In the continuing struggle to come to terms with my sexuality, I was divorced and left The Episcopal Church in order to life my life more honestly and with personal integrity. Incardinated into the EACA, 1997 and began the mission parish, All Saints, Ventura, CA. I am blessed to again be married, this time to an amazing man who completes me and surrounds me with the love I crave everyday. In February 2017, I was honored to be called as a bishop to serve the people and congregations of EACA, and to serve with my fellow bishops. My husband and I live in Costa Mesa, CA with our dog, Paris.
