Elder Chandler currently serves as Associate Treasurer for the South Central Conference of Seventhday Adventists, headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee. Prior to that assignment, he ser ved the New Jersey Conference for nine years as associate treasurer.

Following graduation, Elder Chandler worked in corporate America for nearly three decades, mostly in the State of Texas, before entering denominational service in 2008.

He has been married to the former Rose M. Goldsborough for 22 years and the couple has seven children. We welcome Brother Chandler cordially as he serves the Northeastern Conference family in this capacity. He will officially begin his functions on January 1, 2019.
