Tasha has been teaching and mentoring students at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis since 2002. Previously, she served in campus, women’s, and children’s ministries. She currently explores leadership, Bible storying, and cross-cultural learning. She was part of an 8-year research team, which published The Politics of Ministry: Navigating Power Dynamics and Negotiating Interests (2018) and Resilient Ministry (2013). Tasha is married to the Seminary’s other Dr. Chapman. Their two adult daughters keep them media literate. She enjoys hiking, learning new cultures, and eating ethnic foods, having never met a chili she didn’t like.
