Many pastors and support staff have served the fellowship of Jerusalem Chapel over the years. We are pleased to now introduce you to our incoming “transitional staff” as well as our current pastoral and leadership team members.

Transitioning Staff

Over the past year and a half, our church has been preparing for Pastor Denny’s retirement in late July of 2021. We are pleased to announce that God has heard our prayers and has blessed us with a new Senior Pastor to lead us into the next chapter of ministry for Jerusalem Chapel.

Pastor Mark Tinsley

Incoming Senior Pastor

Pastor Mark comes to us with a diverse background. He has served as a chaplain in the US Army Reserves and as an associate professor. He will soon conclude his pastoral ministry as Senior Pastor of a church in Madison Heights, VA, prior to his arrival at Jerusalem Chapel.

Pastor Mark is a graduate of Buffalo Gap High School. He is the son of Linda Tinsley and the late Dwight Tinsley. Mark and his wife, Beth, have five children ranging in age from 6-16 years old. We look forward to welcoming them into our church family and serving the Lord and our community together in the years ahead!
