Chandler with our student Faith at ACS VBS in 2017!

Hi Everyone!

My name is Chandler Miner and I am eager to join God's work with Arise Africa in Zambia this fall. In 2017, I went on a mission trip with Arise and fell in love with the people and the culture in Lusaka, Zambia. Their enthusiasm and passion made such an impression on me, I knew one day, Lord willing, I wanted to return.  

I have a degree in Child Psychology from Baylor University and will be finishing my Master's in Education next month. The past two years have been spent teaching in low-income public schools in Texas. The desire of my heart has been to use this training and experience to educate and empower educators. Over the past few months, God has made it very clear He wanted me to return to Zambia and to work in Arise’s newest school (Arise Christian School).  My hope is to help encourage and support the students not only academically but more importantly spiritually, with a love of the gospel as the foundation. My role will be training and supporting Zambian teachers, developing curriculum and helping to provide the highest level of education possible for each student at ACS. I could not be more excited to see what the Lord has in store for my time in Zambia and I look forward to sharing pictures and stories along the way! 

Currently, I need to raise support to cover my food, health insurance, work permit and flights to Zambia. My goal is to raise $20,000 that will go directly to my living expenses.  If God lays on your heart to support me either financially or through prayer I would be humbled and thankful for your investment.  Thank you for partnering with me to see the gospel go forth to the nations! 

In Him,

Chandler Miner

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
