STAGHORN CHAPEL HISTORY
Staghorn Chapel’s real identity began many years before the grade work and foundation was started in 1999. Jack Holder, the owner and founder of Staghorn Plantations, searched worldwide with love and due diligence for the many antique components that now comprise the inspiring Staghorn Chapel. The Chapel officially opened on Easter Sunday, April 20, 2003, with a sunrise service. On Good Friday, April 18, 2003, Jim Tench, who built the granite base to hold the dogwood cross, placed the cross in its permanent resting place.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Staghorn Chapel is a quiet sanctuary, set apart from the noise of the world, as a place for meditation and prayer. Within its walls, surrounded by beauty and holy calm, are welcomed those who seek the healing power of God’s hand, those who seek to grow in grace and goodness, those who have sinned and seek forgiveness, those who are lost and need guidance, those who are burdened and seek peace. May all who come here depart in the power and peace of God, whose Spirit caused this “haven of rest” to be built. May each pilgrim who visits pause to give thanks for the many wondrous blessings God has bestowed.
