Chet is a very professional speaker who interacts with the group. His life testimony is intresting and motivating to others to continue to face what life brings you. I would recommend Chet to speak at another event again.

Chet McDoniel

On January 5th, 1980, Chet McDoniel was born into this life with no arms and shortened legs. Though dealt a vicious blow in the delivery room, Chet’s parents decided to raise him as they would any other child. They instilled a positive attitude in Chet that carries with him through to this day.

Throughout Chet’s life, he has faced many struggles from acceptance to daily activities that many take for granted. Chet remains positive throughout these obstacles, and believes that he has the secret to enjoying life to its fullest. Chet delivers keynote speaches from a wheelchair on choosing to be happy, the incredible value of life, and how to overcome insurmountable odds.

Chet graduated magna cum laude from the University of North Texas in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Radio, Television and Film production. As well as leading worship and speaking, Chet owns his own travel agency, Off to Neverland Travel - Disney Vacations. Chet, his wife, Joni, and daughter, Hannah, live in the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX area.

Another option available when bringing Chet in for a special evening with a wheelchair keynote speaker is to have his father, Dr. Jim McDoniel join him. The two present a special keynote entitled, “All He Needs for Heaven.” The presentation is based on a book that Jim McDoniel wrote about Chet. Jim brings years of preaching ministry and first-hand experience regarding the earliest days of Chet’s life. Be sure to ask about this presentation when you inquire.
