Words from Mr. Sapp
I believe God has called me to be a chaplain, not just while I am studying at Truett, but in the future as well. I find great joy in coming alongside people and listening to them, especially during times of difficulty, grief or crisis. I am beyond excited about the opportunity I have been given to be the resident chaplain at Earle Hall. As your chaplain I am committed to being present and available for you throughout this upcoming year. I also hope to provide spiritual care in this community in a way that both comforts you and challenges you. Whether the events of this year bring celebration or struggle, or a mixture of both, know that I am here for you to offer spiritual support.
I grew up in St. Louis. I completed my undergraduate education at Pepperdine University in California, where I majored in Religion and Intercultural Communication. I am currently studying at Truett, pursuing a Master of Divinity with a concentration in sports ministry.
When I am not studying or spending time with students I will be cherishing time with my wife, Chelsea, who I met at Pepperdine. Some of the things we enjoy together include cooking, going to the farmer's market, and trail running in Cameron Park. I personally enjoy biking the trails in Cameron Park, and most activities that take place outside.
