She has had the opportunity to serve in ministry at churches in Hope and Arkadelphia, AR. Meredith married her best friend, Clayton Chapuis, in 2012. They love to explore the outdoors; biking, kayaking, skiing, running, and hiking as well as spending time with family and reading a good book.
Clayton is also a graduate of Ouachita Baptist University and is currently working for Ouachita in their Development office as the representative to North Arkansas. Clayton studied Christian Studies with an emphasis in mission and philosophy and is very passionate about people.
Meredith and Clayton are passionate about seeing relationships grow with and through Christ and fellow believers. They believe discipleship is key to growth in personal relationships with Christ.
I was born in a small city in southern Arkansas (Hope). My family attended First Baptist Church; we were very involved. We were in the church every day it was open. In fact, my mom was the Sunday school preschool director and VBS director along with being a full time stay at home mom of three.
I gave my life to Christ at the age of 9 after seeing a performance about the story of Jesus. I struggled with understanding a relationship with Christ rather than simple fear of hell. Through others pouring into my life and studying scripture, my relationship with the Lord grew. I was baptized at 13, already feeling a call on my life.
I have always been called to ministry (as all Christians are), but it took me some time to figure out what that really meant. I want to be a vessel for Christ, I want to be flexible in allowing God to use me as he chooses.
I am beyond excited about leading children and pouring my life into them, as well as their parents.
Vision for Grace Hills Church
My vision for Grace Hills Church is to see God move. Grace Hills is a church full of beautiful children. I want to see these children excited about the Gospel. We don’t want children to accept Christ and move on; we want children to accept Christ so that they can delve into a deep relationship and yearn to grow more.
I want to build relationships with parents and families in our church and be an encourager to these parents. I want to live life with not only the children of Grace Hills but also their families.
