2012 Women's Thursday Program for General Assembly - Chandra Oliver
- Categorized in: 2012 General Assembly Women's Program
Chandra Oliver is a member of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Edmond, OK. Her husband Matthew is a teaching elder serving as a Chaplain with the U.S. Army Reserve. Her passion is to teach others "covenant theology (which) is the heart and essence of biblical womanhood and thus central to women's ministry." Chandra has served as her local church's WIC president, as PresWIC president for the North Texas Presbytery, and is currently the WASC representative for the West region.
Every day there are PCA Chaplains caring for the dying, ministering to the sick, praying with our military and their families, preaching Christ in warzones, looking for opportunity to show the love of God, and striving to shine the light of the Gospel into what can be very dark and trying circumstances. As these chaplains serve openly and publicly, there is a quiet and private side to this ministry experienced most intimately by a chaplain’s wife. The life of a military wife is one of great sorrow and great joy. Often a military wife is separated from her husband for many months at a time and may not have a local PCA church in which she and her children can worship and serve. And yet, there are great joys as she knows her support of her husband allows the Gospel to go forth in powerful and unique ways – touching the lives of our next generation and impacting the hearts of our leaders. Come and hear about this exceptional ministry of the PCA, the stories of our sisters, and how you can encourage our chaplains locally and throughout the world.
