Dr. Chaundra Creekmur, a native of Augusta, Georgia, is the oldest child and only daughter of her parents, Jonathan and Antoinette.
She accepted the Lord as her personal Savior at an early age while attending church with her grandfather, Deacon Arthur L. Murdaugh, at the Miley Church of God in Miley, South Carolina. Upon entering high school, she decided to worship closer to home at Beulah Grove Baptist Church under the teaching of Dr. Sam Davis. She soon found a nurturing for her gift of song as an alto and soloist in the B.I. Vernon Young Adult Choir. As an adult, she continued in this manner by joining the Beulah Grove Inspirational Choir. She also worked with the Youth Ministry as the Youth Revival Coordinator and Membership Development (Youth Sessions) Organizer. Under the Department of Christian Education, she served as the Youth Curriculum Director, Teen Bible Study Instructor, and Teen Sunday School Alternate Instructor. When needed, she instructed teachers for adult, children, and youth classes on lesson plan development and alternative strategies for content delivery.
During her undergraduate years, she continued in ministry through music and worship arts while attending New Life Ministries (Valdosta, GA) where she was blessed to grow in faith and understanding under the teaching of Bishop Larry D. and Dr. Angela S. Manning.
Dr. Creekmur is known for her REAL persona as she walks in faith and truth. She believes in the power of encouraging others on the premise of God’s word.
~ Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. .~
(1 John 4:4 KJV)
Dr. Creekmur is an Army veteran; having served in the Georgia Army National Guard as well as U.S. Army. Thereafter, she returned home to serve as a Science Educator for the Richmond County School System in Georgia.
