The Pastorate

Pastor:  Keith Chappelow

Pastors in Community of Christ are most often Bi-vocational, self sustaining ordained ministers in the Church and are elected each year by the congregations they serve.  Keith Chappelow, is the current Pastor at Community of Christ in Kalamazoo.  He is an ordained High Priest.  He and his wife, Karen Chappelow, live in Hastings, Michigan and  their son, John, attends Thornapple Kellogg schools in Middleville, MI. Keith is easily reached by email or by cell phone 616-915-5557. We encourage all who might be looking for a Church home to consider joining us at Community of Christ in Kalamazoo.


Kevin Anderson, a High Priest in the Church and Gerry Hice an Elder, and Ellie Heacock an Elder are also pastors of the congregation. They, along with Keith, make up the Pastorate which is the primary leadership team of the congregation.  They meet monthly to pray for the congregation, share  and address concerns of the congregation as well as evaluate and initiate ministry programs for the coming years.
