MEET THE TEAM
Scott Leib | Lead Pastor
I’ve been at Chapel Springs Church for 32 years. In June 2002, after several years of serving in various capacities, I became lead pastor. I’m madly in love with Lila, my wife of 35 years. I enjoy hiking, reading and am an obnoxious new grandparent. Ask me about my grandson at your own risk! Born in Northeast Ohio, I am a die-hard Cleveland sports fan, so I am often looking for past times I can actually enjoy.
Dr. Doug Chapman
I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio where I acquired a lifelong love for the Ohio State University Buckeyes football team. I hold a PhD from Michigan State University and am passionate communicator. As the oldest pastor at Chapel Springs, you just know I am going to be interested in all things historical!
My name is T.J. and I am married to the most incredible woman on the planet. I have two sons (who we call Pterodactyls) and a loveable golden retriever. I love sports, including the Philadelphia Eagles, the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Atlanta Braves, and whatever team Lebron is playing for (although him playing for the Lakers makes that pretty tough). I’m a big nerd who loves Star Wars, Marvel movies, High Fantasy fiction, and strategy games. I love people, so if we haven't met, come say hi!
You can call me PB; at least that’s what the kids do! I’m a Jesus girl originating from the west coast. I spend my free time hunting for a cup of strong coffee and tasty Thai food. Travel away from the city, and you can catch me stand up paddle boarding or hiking. Quality time is spent at home watching the Seahawks and cuddling with my kitty, Blitz.
Dr. Stephanie Nance
Some call me “Doctress.” Whether you want to explore theological unknowns or excavate the seven seasons of The West Wing, I’m always ready to companion you to the depths. My emboldened spirit thrives in following the ancient paths of early Jesus followers in England, Scotland, and Ireland. However, I’m content living in Northern Virginia where I try to grow lettuce on my deck and periodically pretend I can crochet.
I hail from the city of Champions, BBQ & Jazz, Kansas City, Missouri. From an early age of 13, I began leading worship and started being mentored for ministry. If you ask me what I’m passionate about in ministry, I’d definitely say “People!” In the same way, if you asked me what I am most passionate about in life, I’d say (without hesitation), “My Lord, my Lady & our Justice”. I am in love with my wife of 20+ years, Leah and together with our miracle baby boy, Justice, our family is known as #TeamWes.
I have served Chapel Springs Church since 2005. I’m married to Colette West, another Chapel Springs staff member, and have three grown sons who have produced six amazing grandchildren. I’ve had the privilege to provide operational leadership to the IT, Finance, Communication, Office Management, and Facilities Department. I'm also a retired USAF Colonel, with over 26 years of active service as an F-15/16 fighter pilot.
Hey, I’m Brady! I love fishing, coffee, the New England Patriots, and my wife, Lauren. I grew up in an Army family, so I was able to travel all across the world as a kid, but having lived in Virginia for 8 years, it's become my home. I’m definitely a people person, so meeting and connecting with people (come say hi!) is something that brings me joy!
I’ve loved teaching little ones and encouraging their parents for over 25 years. During that time, I’ve also raised two daughters—one is an actor and the other is an archaeologist. Fun fact, I’m an identical twin! We don’t look exactly alike anymore, but our voices are indistinguishable. Baking, decorating, and sharing my cookie creations is one of my favorite hobbies; if it weren’t for the waking up early part, I’d want to own a bakery one day! I love going to the Indianapolis 500 race every year with my husband (once I started, I was totally hooked) and I find a strange amount of happiness in the art of laundry stain removal...I love the challenge!
I’m a plant loving, garden mama who enjoys an ice-cold glass of peach tea and slinging essential oils. One day, my husband Garrett and I are going to live beachside, where he can open a killer restaurant (if you’ve tried his cooking, you totally get it) and I can be an interior designer. But until then, my time is spent exploring liturgical spiritual rhythms, tackling renovation projects, binge watching The Office, and fishing lakeside with our two pups.
Whenever someone stops by my office, my first question is “Have you tried turning it off and back on again?” I have been on staff at Chapel Springs Church since 2013, and have done a little bit of everything along the way. I am currently the IT Director, so I handle everything from Computers to Servers to Internet, and I also serve as one of our drummers on the worship team. I have a beautiful wife and awesome daughter with another little one on the way. When I am not at work, I am either watching “Bluey” on Disney+ with my daughter or breaking the internet at home. I'm into retro video games (SEGA for life!), good coffee, camping, and cooking with cast iron.
I love Jesus, my family, my job, the Seahawks and having FUN… with whatever I do, I try to laugh while doing it! I love to visit other countries; it helps me to gain perspective on my own life. It also inspires me to share my love for different cultures and people. The best part of my job is empowering others to also experience that love and passion I have for the far corners of the earth. When I’m not on the other side of the world, or serving in our local Georgetown South ministry, you will find me downing coffee and reading books in the sun. P. S. GO HAWKS!
I like to think of my job as the master of etcetera. I can be found managing the office, looking for lost things, troubleshooting the database and handling the needs of staff members and congregants. This comes to me naturally as I also perform this function at home with a large family of seven, two grand kids, a chocolate lab and a handful of cats. I love my Outer Banks, NC vacations and I dream of being a mermaid when I grow up.
