    Dr. Chatman was a man of authentic wisdom, grace, and integrity. This man was selfless in his pursuit to serve others while he maintained the responsibilities of pushing The Kingdom’s agenda! I will forever be grateful for his many acts of kindness towards me and the ministry for extending his pulpit to me as I began to spread my wings within the ministry. Thank you Pastor Chatman for not forgetting about me, but seeing my potential as being critical enough to entrust me to stand where you stood!

    Praying for comfort, peace, and must well rest for Mrs. Chatman, the family and The Little Zion church family!

    Graciously & Humbly submitted by,
    Pastor C.M. & Lady Nichole Carter

    To the Chatman Family: I remember Dr. Chatman as a kind man of God. I met him through his cousin and we worshipped at Mount Olive together and helped with the Youth Choir. May he rest with Jesus and may God comfort each of you as only He can.
