I just heard tonight that John Chapman, long time evangelist in the Sydney Anglican diocese passed away a couple of days ago, aged 82. I never met John, but heard him speak at numerous conferences – always engaging, always passionate for the gospel, always biblical. I have a deep gratitude for John’s work, particularly his transformative work in the Anglican diocese of Armidale – for it was in that diocese, many years later, where many faithful gospel preachers followed in John’s footsteps where I became a disciple of Jesus in 1981.
With his passing, he is now at rest with the Lord. Thank you John.
