Rev. Lynette R. Chapman, M.Div.


Pastor Chapman is the pastor of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. She has 20+ years of experience as a parish pastor in a variety of settings, a love of worship, and an affinity for finding creative ways for us to be God’s people today. Her preaching centers around God’s in-breaking Word of love and grace for us and our world, along with the challenge to, as the prophet Micah puts it, “act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.” Although born in Indianapolis, Indiana, to parents from Nebraska, Pastor Lynette moved to Pennsylvania in her teens. She is a graduate of Penn State University (BS Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology) and the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg (Master of Divinity). She served 3 congregations in Eastern Pennsylvania, including Trinity Lutheran, Pottsville (Associate), St. James Lutheran, Chalfont (Pastor/Redeveloper), and Trinity Lutheran, Quakertown (Pastor). Pastor Lynette is married to Pastor Paul Chapman, who is originally from Chicago and is now the pastor at St. Matthew Lutheran, Urbana. They have one daughter, Raylynn, and two sweet cats. In her time away from the office, Pastor Lynette enjoys eclectic music, good food, long walks, and interesting books. They are currently living in Champaign.
