About Cloretta Chandler

2009 Cloretta3 (post)Pastor/Teacher/Mentor

Elder Cloretta Chandler has been commissioned by God in Christ Jesus to operate as a catalyst in the life of the believer.

Elder Chandler’s belief and message is that in order to reach our full potential in Christ we must know who we are as children of God.  We must come to realize that because of Christ we are no longer bound by the guilt of our past, by sin or shame.  We have been given a kingdom inheritance full of power to overcome every obstacle, every heart ache and every pain and to help the believer reach their full potential as Kingdom Citizens.

Elder Cloretta Chandler is also a powerful prognosticator of the gospel.  She has been accurately described as “A Quite Storm” whose delivery and presentation of the word draws you in and explodes with wisdom and revelation.

Chandler and Music Ministry of her mother Rosetta Chandler, Elder Cloretta learned the value and worth of being a servant of the Most High God. As a “pastor’s kid” she as well as her siblings were afforded the opportunity to learn the integral workings of a viable and successful ministry during her parents 40+ years of service at Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church. These lessons have become a fundamental part of her life.  She accepted her call into the ministry in 1998 and was licensed in 1999.  In 2004 Elder Chandler was ordained under the leadership of her brother, pastor and mentor Rev. James E. Chandler, Sr., Pastor/Founder of Marvelous Light Christian Ministries.
