the chapel wood story
Dan Robison was the founding pastor of Chapel Wood, and was an active member of our church family until his graduation to heaven in December 2018. His wife Mary continues to actively serve at Chapel Wood. After pastoring the church for several years, Dan followed God’s call to a ministry of constructing church buildings. He and Mary have traveled around the world, building churches and serving as missionaries in South America, Polynesia, and Africa, as well as here in the U.S.
To date the church has been served by six pastors. Pastor Tim, our current pastor, was called to the Church in June 1993.
In 1980, Chapel Wood sponsored a new church start in Auburn which has since become North Auburn Baptist Church.
In 2005 Chapel Wood sponsored a new church plant in the Maple Valley area, which has since merged with Covington Baptist church.
For many year the church owned and operated the Chapel Wood Missions House. The house was the only one of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. The Mission House provided a place to stay for missionaries that were on furlough or stateside assignment. As a result our church has been blessed to get to know a number of wonderful families that serve all over the world. We still keep in touch and participate in the ministries of many of these missionaries.
