Dr. Chappell Temple Endorsed by Delegation

Date Posted: 11/14/2011

In late October, The Texas Annual Conference delegation chose to endorse Dr. C. Chappell (Chap) Temple for election to the office of Bishop. In accordance to annual conference rules, the endorsement followed three delegation meetings, personal statements, interviews, and ballots. The delegation began with a slate of eight names, ending with the sole endorsement of Dr. Temple - currently the Senior Pastor appointed to Lakewood UMC in Houston.


TAC Web Content Manager Brant Mills sat down with Dr. Temple to learn more about his background, views and thoughts including his perspective on the role of a Bishop. Read the Q&A online at http://www.txcumc.org/candidatechaptemple.
