Chandler graduated from Lipscomb University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in History/Political Science. Later that year, he began his career in education teaching high school history and coaching football in Texas. Eventually, the effects of addiction began to take over and his life had become unmanageable. He had lost just about everything and finally came to the realization that he was in need of help. At that point, he entered the Hope Center in Dickson and re-committed his life to Christ. Chandler’s story is one of redemption and restoration, and he now serves as the Director of our Memphis center. Chandler married his beautiful wife Noelle in November 2017 and they are expecting their first child in December 2018!
