Rev. Dr. John P. Chandler

Leader, www.uptick.org 

John Chandler leads Uptick, the network which invests in building the leadership pipeline in BGAV life and beyond.  Since 2007, Uptick has been noted as a global leader for best practices in developing high-capacity young leaders, having discipled over five hundred of them so far, many of whom have started Uptick networks in their own contexts. Prior to that, John served as leader for the Courageous Churches team for the Baptist General Association of Virginia, where he has served since 1999. Chandler served as Pastor of Effort Baptist Church in Palmyra, VA, as Pastor of Twin County Baptist Church in Kendall Park, NJ, on a church planting team for the South Jersey-Pennsylvania Baptist Association, and as Minister of Youth at Friendly Avenue Baptist Church in Greensboro, NC, where he was baptized and ordained. He is author of six books.  His recently released book, Uptick: Finding and Forming the Next Generation of Pioneering Leaders, is being acclaimed as a “treasure trove of movemental wisdom” and “the leaven of hope for the church.”
