Chuck Mylander serves as executive director of Evangelical Friends Mission, the national missionary-sending agency for the evangelical Friends churches in the United States. Before assuming this post in July 2001, he served for 17 years as superintendent of Evangelical Friends Church Southwest. Prior to this he served on the staff of small, medium, and large churches.
He is also an adjunct professor for Azusa Pacific University in the Haggard School of Theology. He serves as a trustee for George Fox University and has taught as a guest lecturer in Bible schools in Guatemala, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Burundi.
He's the author of several books and many articles, writing often for the devotional publication Fruit of the Vine. His books include (with Neil Anderson) Blessed Are the Peacemakers, Experiencing Christ Together, and Extreme Church Makeover (all from Regal Books). Other books by him alone include More Energy for Your Day (Barclay Press), Running the Red Lights (Regal), and Secrets for Growing Churches (Harper & Row).
Chuck grew up in Boise, Idaho, attended Boise State University for two years and graduated from George Fox University (B.A.) and Fuller Theological Seminary (D. Min.). He and his wife, Nancy, reside in Brea, California. They have two grown children and five grandchildren. Nancy retired January 1, 2007, from her position as administrator of Rose Drive Friends Church in Yorba Linda, California, where Chuck served as associate pastor for ten years with founding pastor, C. W. Perry.
For fun Chuck likes waterskiing, travel, reading, writing, and especially time with grandkids. Nancy loves home decorating, music, reading, and time with family, friends, and each and every grandchild. Chuck and Nancy love their home church and get interested in whatever their grown children and grandchildren are into! Chuck says that he's really not very funny, but he keeps trying to tell the same old jokes anyway.
