Chante Truscott is a gifted author, charismatic leader, licensed minister, passionate speaker, wise teacher, and the founder of Wives in Waiting Ministries. Wives in Waiting (WIW) is an international ministry that desires to see women live out their purpose as they fully commit themselves to a personal relationship with Christ. Under Chante’s leadership, Wives in Waiting has globally impacted thousands of lives through a range of programs: Good Thing 101/Favor Revealed, Outreach Teams, Sister CirclesThe Restored Bride Discipleship, and Wives in Waiting Youth (for young women, ages 12-23).  

 

Chante grew up in church, but didn’t have an authentic relationship with God—it was a personal encounter with Christ while living in South America that altered the course of her life forever and the conception of WIW followed. Since its birth in 2012, WIW has expanded its focus to deliverance, healing, and discipleship “Our main goal is still to walk along side women as we help them honor their commitment to God, addressing the root of why that’s been tough,” says Truscott.   

Chante firmly believes that God has a deep desire to see women grow into exactly who He created them to be. With Chante at the helm, WIW continues to diversify to meet the needs of all women, especially those in vulnerable communities.  

As an Infertility Warrior, Chante was blessed to give birth to a daughter in August 2018. Chante continues to advocate for women battling infertility—raising awareness by partnering with various organizations and rallying with women through compassionate prayer and empathetic support as they walk through their infertility journeys.  

Chante is a proud graduate of American Intercontinental University and holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration—Human Resources. As a human resource professional, Chante teaches people how to marry both passion and career through her first of two published works, Process to Your Purpose, a step-by-step guide that gives insight on how to harness your God-given passion into a career that can work for you. Her second book is a thirty day devotional,  For Lovers Only, that gives readers an in-depth look at the love God has for each of His children.  

Chante is married to the love of her life and best friend, Louis Truscott. The trailblazing duo founded Truscott Enterprises, which is home to several ministries that further assist them in reaching God’s people to ignite their passion for Christ. The Truscotts have dedicated their lives, both personally and professionally, to the advancement of God’s kingdom. When they aren’t serving outside of the home, they are leading in their most important roles as the the proud parents of two incredible daughters, Janiah and Carter.
