About the Event
Chelsea Spyres is the Pastor and Executive Director of Riverfront Ministries, the operating partner for the Wilmington Kitchen Collective. Chelsea is a native of Newark, DE who spent time in Detroit, MI and Washington, DC before returning to the area. She has worked both in non-profit and traditional church spaces, and she feels her current role brings the two together in the best of ways. Chelsea holds a Master of Divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary and a Bachelor in Human Services from the University of Delaware. She is passionate about the intersections of food, faith, and community, which led to the birth of the Wilmington Kitchen Collective, a community-based project that develops under-utilized city spaces (especially church kitchens) and turns them into a commissary space for food entrepreneurs. She has had extensive experience writing grants to support this crucial work. Chelsea loves hiking, camping, and live music. She can often be found hanging her hammock or supporting Riverfront musicians at local gigs.
