Meet the Writer
Hi! I’m Chuck Hagele, Executive Director of Project Patch. I love and enjoy the company of my wife of over 22 years and our three kids.
When I’m not focused on being a dad or leading Project Patch, I enjoy running, fly-fishing, eating, and pursuing any other adventure I can find. Did I mention I enjoy food?
I have my degree in theology with a minor psychology, and followed that with a master’s degree in business administration with a focus on Information Management. I’m also an ICF Certified Professional Coach.
In 1988 I spent my first summer working at a youth camp and I was hooked: I knew I wanted to work with youth. So I tried a few different jobs serving young people until I settled into Project Patch, a job I love and consider more of a passionate ministry than a job.

But, more than anything, I hope you find it useful enough to implement positive changes into your parenting, and encouraging enough to help you realize you’re doing your best at a very difficult job.
