About My Family

I was born at Georgia Baptist Hospital in Atlanta, Ga., to Barbara Hays and George Clark Bond. My sister, Bridget, and I were raised in a secure, middle-class home in Atlanta where we knew we were loved. I met my wife, Nancy Walke Bond, at First Baptist Church Atlanta in 1982. After two years of courting, we married. She inspires me to seek God and to live out my faith on a daily basis. We are blessed with two intelligent and handsome sons: Zachariah (Zach) Clark and Matthew Alexander (Alex).

I have a Doctor of Ministry in Chaplaincy degree from Gateway Seminary, a Master of Divinity degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and a diploma in biblical counseling.

About My Ministry

Since June 2017, I have been the senior director of chaplaincy at the North American Mission Board, SBC. I provide daily managerial oversight of the chaplain endorsement application process for the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) as well as direct guidance, mentoring, training and pastoral care to chaplains and their families. Also, I represent the SBC at various professional chaplaincy organizations and meetings.

Prior to this ministry position, I was the lead chaplain at Northside Hospital in Atlanta, Ga. In addition, I have more than six years of experience as a staff chaplain at hospital trauma centers in Columbus, Ohio. I am board certified by the Association of Professional Chaplains. I have served on ministerial staffs for 30 years in Southern Baptist churches in Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia and Ohio.


Pray for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts among the people to whom I minister. Pray for people to come to saving faith in Jesus. Pray for more to become missionaries and chaplains.


Commit to long-term prayer support. Explore the opportunities to extend the reach of your church by becoming a chaplain. Be involved in supporting chaplains and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Talk with a chaplain about his or her ministry context. Send resources that support a chaplain's ministry context. Pray for chaplains and their families.
NAMB does not provide compensation for SBC endorsed chaplains. However, a general fund is available to receive donations in support of the ministry and pastoral care to SBC endorsed chaplains. To donate, please visit Support Chaplaincy (
