Minister of Music/Outreach Director – Chandler Padgett
Chandler grew up in Calhoun, GA and made his way to Tennessee after he graduated high school in 2016. He attended Bethel University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Music Education. While at Bethel, he met his wife, Riley Padgett, and the two have been married since December of 2021. After completing his bachelor’s degree, he traveled and sang with the southern gospel trio, 11th Hour. While singing professionally had been a dream of Chandler’s, he felt called to leave that industry to be more involved with the local church. He has served as the Minister of Music/Outreach Director at Barfield since May of 2022. Chandler has a deep love for music, but more importantly, a love for leading God’s people in musical worship. He strives to bridge the gap of traditional and modern worship to create an atmosphere for everyone that attends. Chandler aims to see God glorified in all he does at Barfield and is grateful for the opportunity to serve.
