Chantel McHenry- Executive Coordinator
Chantel is anointed by God with a gift of administration that enables businesses to operate effectively and efficiently. She has worked with a number of non-profit organizations as an administrator, bookkeeper, event planner, volunteer coordinator, member database manager, and accounts receivable clerk. For over five years Chantel has faithfully served as the Executive Coordinator for The Prayer Institute. During her tenure she has been an integral part of moving the ministry forward by establishing a member database management system, developing a volunteer recruitment and retention program, and managing the website redevelopment project.
Prior to working with The Prayer Institute she was employed by Lakewood Church, working for the Executive Director of Ministries. She also served as the Volunteer Coordinator for the Joel Osteen Ministries “Night of Hope” events held all over the nation. In addition to her job responsibilities, Chantel established and led the intercessory prayer team, was a part of the curriculum writing and teaching team for the PrayerLife Classes, and served as the Team Lead for the Singles 35 and older Compass Sunday school class.
For many year’s Chantel volunteered with a local ministry as the Director of Prayer and Deliverance. She participated in local and international missions work, traveling to Belize and Honduras to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God has given Chantel a heart for the broken, the unloved, and those that feel hopeless. Her true passion is to see people live a victorious and balanced life; walking in the freedom God has made available to them and that the unadulterated Word of God, ministered in its entirety, would bring healing, deliverance, and restoration.
In her free time Chantel enjoys dancing. She is trained in several styles including: Cuban Salsa, Detroit Ballroom, and Bop. One of her favorite quotes is by William W. Purkey; “you’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, love like you’ll never be hurt, sing like there’s nobody listening, and live like it’s heaven on earth.” Chantel is a believer that we all should enjoy everyday life.
Chantel is married to a wonderful man, Ali McHenry, and has one amazing son, Ryan.
