Danny Dean Chambers

Danny Dean Chambers, 62, of Franklin, went to be with his lord and savior on Sept. 23, 2020.  

Mr. Chambers was born in Long Beach, California. He began traveling at 10 days old. His parents were missionaries and shared the word of God through music. His father published over 5,000 songs in his lifetime to several renowned gospel artists, and Danny spent his life pursuing and leading others into the presence of God.  

When he was 3 years old, he recorded his first album with his father. He started playing the drums at age 9 and started a band at age 15.

Like a modern day David, he was a man after God’s own heart. Danny, Jill and their children moved to Nashville in 1997 to establish The Oasis Church.

He considered himself a “hope giver” and changed the atmosphere of worship in Nashville. Danny’s ministry took him all over the world, and he had a global impact on worship leaders and pastors. 

He was a prolific songwriter, like his dad, and wrote worship music, carrying the call to multiple generations. He recorded over 20 albums, including working with Integrity Hosanna music. His music allowed the listener to enter the very throne of God. 

He was preceded in death by his father, Arley Noah “Bud” Chambers. He’s survived by his wife, Jill Bohannan Chambers; sons, Christopher Dean (Nicole) Chambers and Daniel Isaac (Kiersten) Chambers; daughters, Melody Cherie’ (Akil) Thompson, Sydni Danielle (Colby) Simons and Destiny Jewel Chambers; grandchildren, Tyra Milan, London Cherie’ and Cayman Cortez Ali Thompson, Abigail Grace, Madeleine Rose and Ezekiel Lion Chambers and Charlotte Brielle Simons; mother, Beverly Darlene Chambers; father- mother-in-law, Sid and Jacquie Bohannan; sister- and brother-in-law, Melissa and Ken Lockett; and nephews, Kendal and Kaid Lockett.  

A private family graveside service will be conducted at Christ Church Memory Gardens.  A celebration of life will be conducted at 2 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5, 2020 at Church of the Highlands, Grants Mill Campus, located at 4700 Highlands Way in Birmingham, Alabama.
