Chapin Marsh, one of the founders of Calvary Chapel University, holds his Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Political Science from University of Southern California, Master’s degree in Education from Pepperdine and his Doctorate in Education from Pensacola Christian College.
Chapin brings a varied background of business, pastoral and educational experience. He owned Domino’s pizza stores in Southern California, consulted small businesses in the media and alternative energy industries, served as the Executive Pastor at a large start up in San Diego, has consulted many Christian schools nationwide, and served as the Administrator of pre-k through 12. He also served as the President of Horizon College San Diego. He currently serves at the Pastor/Administrator for the Pre-K through 12 at Calvary Christian Academy in Ft. Lauderdale as well as the President of Youth Development, Inc., a Christian youth camp in Head Waters, Virginia.
From his time consulting Christian schools, he felt the Lord showing him a need for Calvary Chapel University. Many servants at Christian schools were faithful in answering God’s call to teach or administrate, but felt ill equipped for practical application and/or Bible knowledge. Calvary Chapel University provides a flexible learning environment for those faithful folks to grow in their knowledge/skill while serving daily in the ministry.
Pastor Chapin is married with 3 lovely children and loves to travel, read and share Jesus wherever he goes.
