Chester McLaughlin

Chester McLaughlin spends most of his time and effort working on the coordination of Hume Ministries' marketing and communication efforts. To stave off carpel tunnel and other repetitive stress injuries (read: boredom) he can often be found leading tours, taking portraits, and pushing a big red triple stroller around camp with his wife.
