Daryl Merrill, Senior Pastor

Christian Life Church - Mount Prospect

I’ve watched Larry’s life up close and personal. He has a love for God’s people, the church. His heart for the lost is unmatched. His testimony is powerful. Whether preaching from behind the pulpit or sharing one on one, Larry is one of the best. He wants to see everyone walking in the freedom and power of God. I wholeheartedly recommend my friend, Larry Chapel, to you!


Phil Ballmaier, Senior Pastor

Calvary Chapel – Elk Grove Village

I am writing this letter of recommendation on behalf of Larry Chapel. I have known Larry for 15 years and have found him to be a faithful Christian and servant of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I have  never seen anything in Larry’s character -  in anything he has said or done that would indicate he is in any way playing games with his faith or trying to scam anyone through his ministry. Larry has always demonstrated a heart for those incarcerated and longs to see them come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

In closing, I heartedly write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Larry Chapel. I believe he is truly a man of God, a trustworthy servant of Christ, and a passionate evangelist of lost and hurting people.

In Jesus’ precious Name


Jerry McQuay, Senior Pastor

Christian Life Center - Tinley Park

I have known and worked with Larry Chapel for about 15 years.  In all that time I have known him to be a man of integrity and trustworthiness.  I believe him to be a true follower of Christ, and I heartily endorse his ministry to reach prisoners and opioid addicts.

Larry Chapel is a man God is using greatly to lift up the broken hearted. I have spent much time with him and can say he is the real thing. Larry has achieved much professionally, but still spends a lot of time helping the incarcerated and addicted achieve true freedom.

Overcoming Through Grace Radio, Host

I have known Larry Chapel for about eight years now.  I have seen Larry in professional settings as well as casual, social settings.  I have followed him on social media, and I have partnered with him through Christian radio.  He is a man of integrity, and he is definitely the real deal.  I would have no hesitation to put him on the board of our church, and ministries in a leadership role with the greatest of responsibilities.  His heart to want to help others is genuine, time tested, and consistent.  I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of help in turning their lives around.


Diane Dominguez, Pastor

The White Stone Awakening Christian Center

I have known Larry Chapel for approximately 10 years. He is a kind giving man who desires from the deepest part of his being to help others. His integrity and honesty are above reproach. I highly recommend him to work with prisoners because he will bring them the confidence and self-esteem needed to function at a higher level than they did before. Allowing him access will improve morale and change lives. You will not regret a decision to allow him access. Thank you.



Richard Jordan, Pastor

Shorewood Bible Church - Rolling Meadows,  IL

As a pastor and Bible teacher, I’ve been involved in jail and prison ministry for many years.  Occasionally a former inmate comes along who demonstrates the transforming power of God’s love and grace in the real terms of daily life.  Larry Chapel is one of those people.

I know Larry in both professional and personal settings and can attest to the fact that he consistently demonstrates himself to be a trustworthy businessman, a loving family man and faithful minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Larry carries a genuine burden for those incarcerated and/or addicted to narcotics/porn/etc. His vision for ministering to this too often overlooked field is both unique and effective.  I am happy to recommend both him and his work.



Dave Rende - Worship Leader

Quentin Road Baptist Church - Lake Zurich

I've seen Larry work with inmates firsthand and I've seen his care and compassion. Not only has Larry's life been transformed by the power of the Gospel, but he is also willing to give of himself to pour that same power into other inmates.
