In Memory


Rev. Sammy Chancey  served as Pastor of Golden Isles Baptist Church since its inception in 2011. Prior to that, he served in ministry for Jesus Christ for over 20 years, working his way up from teaching Sunday school and leading youth in the mid-80’s, to becoming officially ordained and pastoring his first church in 1990. A native of Offerman GA, “Preach” was married to his wife Gina for over 30 years and they have been blessed with two children, Kyle and Darby. He had a background in construction and building, enjoyed fishing, and loved sports…especially football and Nascar racing!

Known for being an expository preacher, Brother Sammy was passionate about preaching and teaching the Word of God in a very understandable and loving way. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18  “Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.  According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.  For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.  Therefore encourage one another with these words.”
