  2. Dr. H’Devore Chapman, was an outstanding preacher and very productive citizen to society. He helped so many people male and female also become assets to society. He had a kind and giving heart. My prayer is that his fruit remain and those same people give back by helping others.
    You will be missed Dr. H’Devore Chapman

  3. Rev. Chapman has been my pastor ever since I was a little girl. I remember when Greater Bright Light was a small church next to a corner store. He watched me grow up, go into the military, christined my first born and he was a big part of our family. It breaks my heart to know that when I come home my favorite preacher will no longer be. However, he taught me about the Lord and He does not make mistakes. I will forever cherish the love and hearty laughter
    he brought to us all. You could not be in his presence and not feel cared about or loved. What a true man of God he was. I will continue to take with me all the teachings he taught and continue to abide in them, for someday my number will be called and I want heaven to be my home also. You will be truly missed. Love Always Ron & Family
