    Chandler grew up in Lawrence, Kansas where she eventually studied Biology at the University of Kansas. She grew up in a Christian home and had most of the head knowledge about who Jesus was, yet she did not fully understand what it actually meant to have a personal relationship with Jesus until her sophomore year of college. She spent the next three years learning what it meant to not only have a relationship with Christ but also how to make disciples on a college campus.

    Born and raised in south Texas, I grew up in the church but lived in full depravity away from God. While attending university at UT Dallas in 2014, God used the gospel of Jesus to change the trajectory of my life forever. I spent the next three years joyfully learning as a disciple of Jesus and teaching others everything I learned as well. After graduating (2017) I moved to Longmont, Colorado and rooted myself in a local church, Flatirons, where I pour out my life in middle school, high school, young adults, and men’s ministry so that we may grow in our understanding of God’s love and how to bring that to the world. Any free time left consists of cooking, fishing, and ultimate frisbee.

    South Africa is a country of great gospel need, of great spiritual darkness. The country is torn by Traditional African Religions and Islam. Physically, there are more cases of HIV/AIDS than anywhere else in the world, and 78% of South Africans live on less than $2 a day with an unemployment rate of more than 38%. Thank you for your support of the national staff team of Campus Outreach Johannesburg as this is a country in desperate need of the Gospel.
