In March 2000, while a graduate intern at the New Psalmist Baptist Church, Reverend Chandler was elected as the second pastor of the New Bethlehem Baptist Church in Baltimore, Maryland. In less than seven years, the church grew from less than 50 members to more than 600 members, necessitating the need for an additional morning service and increased capital gain.
In December 2007, the Cedar Street Baptist Church of God located in Richmond, Virginia, after 52 years of being led by their former pastor, accepted God’s will to have Dr. Chandler serve and lead them as their new shepherd. His charismatic, innovative and stellar leadership abilities have led this congregation of 2000+ members to pursue a deeper relationship with God while renewing relationships, replacing religiosity with spirituality and leading them in reclaiming their God ordained destiny.
In addition, The African American Pulpit published in their fall 2009 edition his sermon entitled, "There’s a new kid on the block!"
Dr. Chandler’s greatest joy is being married to his high school, Taleshia Lenshell Chandler. "Lady C", as she is affectionately called, is currently completing her PhD fulfillments in Educational Psychology. Their joy has been made complete sharing as the proud parents of Anthony Michael II, Alysha Michelle and Andrew Maxwell. Stay tuned, there is so much more in store!
