About the Baptist Voice

Dr. Paul Chappell, pastor of the Lancaster Baptist Church and president of West Coast Baptist College in Lancaster, California, is the Executive Editor and Publisher of The Baptist Voice—a ministry resource magazine dedicated to helping Christian readers across the globe.

The Baptist Voice began with a burden to offer encouraging and helpful information to fellow servants in the ministry. The first printing was in 1998, and it mailed primarily to the Lancaster Baptist Church family. Today its circulation is world-wide.

Dr. Chappell is married to the former Terrie Bianco of San Jose, California, and they have two daughters and two sons.  His four married children and their spouses are all serving in fulltime Christian ministry.

Dr. Paul Chappell is also the author of eleven books: A Heart for God, To Seek and To Save, Enter His Presence, Guided by Grace, The Right Path, Order in the Church, Grace for Godly Living, A Firm Foundation, Acts: The Church Alive, Abiding in Christ, and The Spiritual Leader. He is a frequent speaker in Bible conferences throughout the United States and around the world.

We praise the Lord for how He is using this publication to help Christians around the world.
