Elder Vernice Moore Chaplin

Elder Vernice Moore Chaplin accepted Christ at the age of 12. She graduated from A. E. Beach High School in 1972 and she graduated from Savannah Vocational Tech in 1974. Elder Chaplin is the proud wife of Shedrick Chaplin. In 2002, Elder Chaplin preached her initial sermon entitled "If you fake it, you won't make it." In 2005, she was ordained by Reverend Matthew Southall Brown, Sr. Elder Chaplin loves to share the word of God with the people of God. Proverbs 3:5-6 is one of her favorite scriptures and it says, "Trust in The Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths."
