About the Speaker:

 Chandra Oliver

Chandra is originally from Oklahoma, and now lives in the state of Washington with her husband Matthew and two felines (Ruby and Ninja). Chandra’s initial experience with women’s ministry was in 2004 shortly after the local church plant they attended became a particular church in the PCA. Matthew was ordained as a ruling elder and Chandra was asked to help establish the women’s ministry. At a complete loss as to where to start, Chandra attended the PCA’s Women’s Leadership Training in Atlanta. Leadership Training was a first taste of a Biblical understanding of womanhood. As her love for women’s ministry grew, she accepted the position of PresWIC president for the North Texas Presbytery, and later served as a regional advisor for women’s ministry in the PCA.

In 2011, Matthew graduated from Westminster Theological Seminary and was ordained as a teaching elder in the PCA, with a specific call as a chaplain to the U.S. Army. This new season of military life has now led Chandra to work with PCA military wives; applying the rich truths of Biblical Womanhood to the context of military life.

Chandra has a variety of interests and hobbies, including reading, gardening, and entertaining. Most recently, she has been studying photography and considering further education in Art Therapy.
