About Us

Our Pastor

Adam Chandler was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. While there, he studied Civil Engineering. Not long after, he took a year abroad to obtain an Advanced Masters in Structural Analysis of Monuments and Historical Constructions in Barcelona and Prague.

Off on his own in Europe, Adam felt how necessary a proper devotional life and a good church family are and began to experience a pull to seminary.

Adam graduated from Concordia Lutheran Seminary in Edmonton in May 2020. On June 19, he was ordained as a Reverend at his home congregation of Foothills Lutheran Church in Calgary, and then installed at Hope Evangelical Lutheran Church in Victoria on July 21, 2020.

Pastor Chandler has gladly taken up preaching and teaching the Word of God, and administering the Sacraments at Hope Lutheran. One of his favorite things to do in the parish is study and instruct in Christian Apologetics -- the defense of the faith.

Pastor Chandler is an avid philosophizer, with special interest in ethics, philosophy of mind, ontology, and epistemology. He also indulges in nerdy habits, and goes from talking about major moral quandaries one moment, to comics in the next.

Among other interests, Pastor Chandler enjoys history, literature, and traveling.

Feel free to come in for a chat or long discussion.

Pastor Chandlerís door is always open to those who wish to learn and grow in the faith, nourished by the Word of our Lord.

Reverend Adam Chandler
