Jerry Chapman, Contemporary Music Director
Jerry was born in New London, CT, but made his way to Winston-Salem as soon as he could (just in time for his 6th birthday). He graduated from RJ Reynolds High School. He later graduated from Furman University in Greenville, SC with a degree in Philosophy. Lots of people with Philosophy degrees teach or go to Law School. Jerry, however, had seen KISS in concert in 1979, so his fate had already been sealed. He hit the road in a van, played in a bunch of bands, recorded over a dozen CD's (including 4 solo albums). He continues to play about 150 shows a year, mostly in NC. He lives in Mount Airy and has 2 awesome kids -- Georgia (16) & Matthew (14). He is often seen in the company of his wife, Jennifer Kiger Chapman, who works for the Wake Forest Bowman Gray School of Medicine, Biomedical Division. Jerry has been at Maple Springs since March 2010.
