Bro. Chase Permenter, Senior Pastor PDF Print

Welcome to Comite Baptist Church.  I am thankful you have chosen to look at our church.  My name is Chase Permenter and I have been serving at CBC since May of 2021.  My family and I are excited to be in your community.  We love Louisiana outdoors, food, and culture.  Angela and I were married in 2011 and have been blessed with two children.  My favorite things are watching football, grilling out, hunting, and woodworking.  I have an undergraduate in biblical studies and pastoral care, a Masters of Divinity in theology and apologetics, and I am currently pursuing a Doctorate of Ministry in applied apologetics.

God blessed me with a Christian home in which my parents strived daily to teach me Christian principles.  I accepted Jesus as my Savior when I was seven during one of our home Bible studies.  During high school, I was the president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and had weekly opportunities to lead fellow students in prayer and Bible study.  The experience to consistently teach God’s word awakened a spiritual longing within me to serve Christ in full-time ministry.  Since then I have served in churches from small-town Mississippi to inner-city New Orleans.  I have been blessed with the opportunity to walk with people from different walks of life.  As the pastor of CBC I strive to create a church rooted in biblical worship, a loving community, and dedicated to pursuing God’s mission in our community.  The church thrives on God’s truth.  In my very being, Christ is my passion, to know Him and His word is my joy, to share this joy with others is my privilege.
