Another Servant of God in a Fight with Cancer

I learned recently that Pastor Matt Chandler of the The Village Church was diagnosed with a tumor in his right frontal lobe. He collapsed with a seizure on Thanksgiving. Since then he underwent an operation to remove the tumor. Things have spread. Further treatment options are under consideration.

Pray for Pastor Matt and his family, OGC. You understand better than most. Take a moment and watch the little over four minute video by Matt here. So much of what he says was exactly where God had me in ’05 in my battle with head and neck cancer.

I wish him, his family, and his church well. If God is pleased to bring him back, he will come back with greater force.

Matt, my heart goes out to you. I’m in your corner. Fight the good fight. Dying is gain but for the sake of others it may be best to remain.

  1. Though Pastor Matt is a “stranger,” he is my brother in Christ, and I was deeply moved by the video. I was challenged in my perspective of Hebrews 11. Just as we pray for our own Pastor Curt, may the Lord graciously give him length of days to enjoy his family and to minister to the saints.
