Chantel is beyond thrilled to be taking over for Pat Wright as Executive Director. "This is a seed God planted in me three years ago when I first met Pat." Chantel worked at MMDC as the Director of Development in 2015 and was shocked when God called her away to a position at First United Methodist Church in Springfield, IL but she and Pat both trusted God's plan and left the door open. "It became evident through God using multiple people that He was calling me back last fall. I learned and grew so much in every aspect of my life during the two years I served at Springfield First UMC but most importantly, I became a truly devoted disciple of Christ. The vessel God uses to be his hands and feet at MMDC is changing but he will still remain in control. I am so grateful God has called me here to serve and help change lives throught Jesus Christ."
Chantel was raised in Broadlands, IL and graduated from Illinois State University with a major in Organizational Leadership and Human Resources Management. Chantel and her husband Brian live in the country just outside Chatham with their 3 daughters, Kerrigan, Makenna, and Miranda.
Chantel's prayer for MMDC: "MMDC light in the world continues to shine brighter and touch more lives for Christ."
