Brett & Debby Chapman

Brett and Debby grew up in the Pacific Northwest. They met in high school, attended the same youth groups, and then Bible College. They were married in 2006 and lived in Florida for seven years serving with Grace Bible Church. They both have a desire to reach others with the clear gospel, disciple, train, and encourage believers in a closer walk with the Lordbased on a solid understanding of the Word of God.

Brett, Debby, and their two girls–Chloe and Lily–joined the Roth and Seravalli families in beginning a new work with GMI in Nicaragua in February 2015. Twin boys, Ethan and Asher, joined the family in 2016. They currently live in Matagalpa, Nicaragua.

Brett is working with local leaders and churches in biblical and theological training through conferences and most recently the opening of a Bible Institute. He is training students through basic courses like “How to Study Your Bible” as well as dispensational theology with the goal of equipping the students for their own ministries.  Brett and Debby meet with some of these students for one-on-one discipleship. They also work in their community offering English as a Second Language (ESL) classes and kids’ outreach events.

They are developing the Arraigados (Rooted) Training Center as a hub for ministry and community outreach in their neighborhood. Currently, Bible Institute classes, English classes, and sign language classes, as well as Bible studies are held there. In the future they hope to offer a variety of practical training and provide more opportunities to share Christ’s love and the message of grace.
