Pray for Chapel on the Hill in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin

Chapel on the Hill was established in 1980 with the land generously given to the church. Fifty years prior to this, the site had been home to the Lutheran Camp Augustana. The church incorporated with seven charter members as a non-denominational community church, calling their first pastor, Phil Barnhart and his wife, Sharon. They served Chapel on the Hill for 22 years. The following pastor, Bob Bardin and his wife, Sally, also served a long-term pastorate before retiring in 2016. Sean Walker is the third pastor in the church’s history. 

Sean, called to serve as their third pastor, along with his wife, Colleen, is following in the footsteps of his predecessors by remaining steadfast and faithfully leading Chapel on the Hill. He is a native of Delavan, Wisconsin and holds a B.A. in Religion (2014) and an MDiv (2016) from the University of Dubuque. While in seminary, he served several internships in Janesville, Wisconsin, as well as Dubuque and Marion, Iowa. Married for 15 years, Sean and Colleen have five children. Sean has a background as an American Sign Language interpreter and enjoys many activities including golf, tennis, racquetball, swimming, pyrotechnics, and the fine and performing arts.

Chapel On The Hill sits between two lakes on a spacious campus which also contains a parish hall, a Christian Arts Center theater which holds up to 250 people, and a prayer chapel overlooking a beautifully wooded landscape. God supplied their needs through the financial generosity provided by many, including Dean and Lois Griffith before Dean went to be at home with the Lord in 2016. Pray with us that God will raise up new givers who will faithfully support the ministry in the years ahead.
