Preaching the good news of Jesus Christ has rested upon the shoulders of this energetic man since the tender age of 5 years old. He accepted the call on his life to preach at 16 years old and was licensed to preach the gospel in 1984 and later ordained in 1985 under the leadership of his spiritual and biological father, Pastor F.

Pastor Chandler has received numerous honors and recognitions of which he credits all achievements to the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
He has released several powerful and relevant musical recordings: “My Year of Increase”; “Chanz Heart”; and “The Collection”; just to name a few.
Pastor Chandler is respected locally and nationally for his idiosyncratic style of delivering the Word of God, and noted as being a humble and faithful servant with multifaceted gifts and talents widely used for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
He has a passion for evangelism and empowering the people of God. His purpose is to enlighten humanity of God’s Covenant; to explain to the hurting of God’s Compassion; and to empower the Heirs of Christ to walk in God’s Commandments.
He is not only a great prognosticator of God’s Word but also a great innovator in the world of enterprise. He serves as CEO of ShowItt Entertainment and as the Metro-West District Overseer in the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International Metro Atlanta District of Georgia.
