The Word Chapel is a non-denominational internet location for the study of the bible, sermons, songs, and resources that would assist you in worshiping God from your location around the world. The Word Chapel is not intended to replace your local church. It is for those who want more Bible study, who are shut-in, who travel or are away from home. The Word Chapel offers a place to read and hear God's Word from wherever you are in the world.

I am Larry Joe McDowell and this is my ministry. I am retired from the military and spent the last two decades programming. When I received the call to ministry in 2015, I decided to take The Word Chapel on as a ministry combining my skills in web development along with my decades of music ministry, bible teaching experience and seminary studies as a graduate of Luther Rice University with an MA in Ministry, Master of Divinity and currently continuing with the Doctor of Ministry program there.

I first dedicated myself to the Lord at the ripe old age of nine. I spent much of my life in music ministry until I got the call to Ministry in 2015. I began music ministry on the organ at the age of 15. I played for three years, then joined the Army, retiring after 20 years. During my time in the Army and afterwards, I was organist, pianist and sometimes music director for chapels and churches in several countries around the world. I am an outreach leader and preach occasionally and offer pastoral assistance for a church that is struggling in an urban area.

I married a Chinese lady, Hong, in my travels, having lived in her hometown of Jiangmen, Guangdong, China for a year. She joined me in the States and gives me a hand occasionally with my varied ministries, especially those involving food.

You can contact me by email at larrymcdowell [at] Since this is a small operation and I am a full-time graduate student, please allow a day or two for a response. By the way, please keep it friendly, as Jesus would have us behave. If you find any bugs or have ideas to improve the site, please feel free to contact me.

Because of graduate studies, this website has been slow in being developed, but I hope to add more features and offer more frequent sermons and bible studies as time allows. I certainly hope to get the hymnal completed by the end of 2017 as well as the membership utilities so that we can add a moderated forum or blog.

Your prayers and support are appreciated.

God Bless!
Brother Larry Joe McDowell
