Chantel is living her passion and purpose as executive director of Midwest Mission Distribution Center. She was first called to serve as the director of development for the non-profit in 2015. Soon after, she felt God’s call to a connections position at First United Methodist Church in Springfield. “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."
God led her back to Midwest Mission at the end of those two years to lead the organization. “ I am so grateful God has called me here to serve and help change lives through Jesus Christ." Chantel is passionate about using missions to get new people involved in the church and grow the discipleship of current attendees. "We were created to serve and there is nothing like the joy that comes from service."
Chantel was raised in Broadlands, IL and graduated from Illinois State University with a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership and Human Resources Management. Chantel and her husband Brian live in the country just outside Chatham with their three daughters, Kerrigan, Makenna and Miranda.
Chantel's prayer for Midwest Mission: "Midwest Mission will bring hope to those receiving our gifts but also to those who have donated and put the gifts together.
In 2020 Chantel was recognized by the Springfield Business Journal list of central Illinois business leaders for "Forty under 40". She was recognized in 2021 by the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce as a nominee for Not-For-Profit Director of the Year. In 2021, she also graduated from the Chamber Leadership Springfield Program.
