Our ministry team is a family! No perfect people are allowed on this team.

God has brought us together, this battered band, to be a "Sure Peg" in the mountains of North Georgia. He has brightened our eyes, so you will see the sparkle when you meet us. He has also filled us with his "Redeeming Love" and it is spilling out on this community.

Our leadership is shown below, consider joining us for this great adventure!

Chip Woodall

Chip Woodall

Lead Pastor


Hello friends!
I am Pastor Chip, the Founder and Lead Pastor of Christwalk International Ministries, Inc.

After 18 years of full-time service in various ministry areas at several churches, God brought our family to the North Georgia Mountains to walk out our life-call and share the redeeming love of Jesus through Christwalk.

Donna and I raised our five children believing for this ministry, and now, it is unfolding to grow our faith level, as we reach unlimited souls for the storehouse.

Between Christwalk Church Cornelia and Christwalk in the Valley, God has already done abundantly more than we could ever imagine.Join us on this great ministry adventure, so we can love on you!

“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]–”Ephesians? ?3:20? ?AMPC??

Donna Woodall

Donna Woodall

Lead Pastor

Hello! I am Donna Woodall, wife to Chip and mom to Christopher, Tyler, Melissa, Emilee, and Tanner.

Along with my responsibilities as the pastor’s wife, teaching and leading women’s conferences and using my skills from my accounting background as secretary/treasurer for Christwalk International Ministries, we are now grandparents! What a great joy and blessing, Josiah is to our family.

My favorite Bible verse is 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 because it reminds us of all the things love is and without it we are nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 2 Corinthians 13:4-8

Tyler Woodall

Tyler Woodall

Ministry Team Leader

Hello everybody!My name is Tyler Woodall; one of Pastor Chip and Donna’s sons and also married to my wife, Catie.

I hold several responsibilities on the ministry team as I lead the ushers, all offerings and assist my dad at every service during alters. I am the one sitting right in front of him at every service! In addition, I am the head coach for the Christwalk softball team, and lead the sports ministry. If you enjoy traveling to share the gospel, you need to talk to me. My heart is missions, outreach and healing. I hope to reach people around the world and tell them all about Jesus and His redeeming love.

I’m actually an automotive painter and certified personal trainer by profession, but I love Jesus more, so my desire is to serve in full-time ministry in the future. In my spare time, I chase Nalla, our German Shepherd, around.

My favorite verse is Psalm 23:4…

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4


Catie Woodall

Catie Woodall

Team Ministry Leader

Hey everyone! My name is Catie Woodall, and yes, I am married to Tyler Woodall.

When you come to visit us at Christwalk Church Cornelia, you will see me doing the morning announcements! Like Tyler, I love missions and outreach, but I am also passionate about teaching children. I lead the children’s ministry and serve in the nursery as needed.

I have a paralegal degree and work for a firm full-time in the Hall County area.

My favorite bible verse is Psalms 46:5 because it reminds me to trust in God no matter what the situation might be.

God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Psalm 46:5

Melissa Price

Melissa Price


Hello y’all! I am Melissa, the oldest Woodall girl.

For several years, I could not decide if I really wanted to dive into all of the demands of this ministry call or not. But, as I have grown closer to Jesus, my decision is clear. I am all in!

With my accounting degree, I keep the books for Christwalk and am playing keyboard during worship for specials. Years ago when mom struggled homeschooling me in math, I am sure she never dreamed I would be the bookkeeper for Christwalk. God is so awesome with His surprises.

My favorite verse is…

He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your child and buckler. Psalms 91:4 NKJV

Jonah Norman

Jonah Norman

Student Pastor

What’s up? I’m Jonah Norman and super excited to be a part of the Christwalk Ministry team!

One of my gifts is teaching, so join us Wednesday Nights for youth to hear me preach about Jesus! I love students and ministering to their needs. In addition to student pastor, I assist Pastor Chip several days each week at both the church and retreat center. Writing is a passion, so I co-author our blog called A Sure Peg and write spoken words.

I am married to Emilee Woodall and guess what? I am a dad! We just had our first little boy, Josiah. Emilee and I also have a business called Sparhard Martial Arts. I am a world champion, 3rd degree black belt, martial artist. I teach Taekwondo to all age groups.

My favorite bible verse is Hebrews 1:9:

You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy. Hebrews 1:9

Emilee Norman

Emilee Norman

Worship Leader

Hey y’all! I’m Emilee Norman, one of Pastor Chip and Donna’s daughters, and the wife of Jonah Norman!

Since the age of 2, my parents told us about the vision of Christwalk and now, it is all unfolding. I am on the ministry team and lead our praise and worship team with a gifted group of musicians and singers.

Our family was blessed with the birth of our first child, Josiah in January of 2019. I am certain he will grow up believing for more and more ministry through Christwalk just like I did.

My favorite verse is Proverbs 31:25 because I believe all girls should have confidence through Christ and stand tall and proud! I love people and desire to serve others anyway that I can!

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. Proverbs 31:25

Tanner Woodall

Ministry Team

Hey, I’m Tanner. I am the youngest Woodall kid and yes, I have grown up in the church doing ministry.

Now, I am called to be a part of the ministry team at the age of 12. Just like Emilee, all I have known is church, ministry everywhere and Christwalk!

You will find me helping in our nursery, participating in any type of student ministry or serving in sports ministry with our softball team. I love ministering to people at Christwalk Cornelia and our Valley Retreat Center.

My favorite verse is Isaiah 40:31:

But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired. Isaiah 40:31
