Pastor Hartwell has a long love for The Chapel School. His children, Alexander and Hannah, attended the school from Kindergarten through 5th Grade. He is married to Sue who served as a teacher at Chapel School for 10 years. Sue presently serves as a special education teacher and works on-on-one with children at area schools including Chapel. Pastor Rob, as he is known, has served as the Associate Pastor and Chapel School Liaison from 1998-2003 and Senior Pastor/Trustee of the Church and School since 2003. He began running several years ago after a successful fundraising challenge that saw him lose over 100 pounds (as well as over $400,000 in matching funds for the Chapel School). Pastor Rob and Sue love to walk and are enjoying a "sometimes empty nest" with both children in college. Pastor Hartwell ran the Westchester Half-Marathon with Team Chapel for the Chapel School in 2009 and the New York City Marathon for Team Chapel for the Chapel School in 2011. He is working at hitting sub 9 minutes miles and plans to run a half or full marathon in the winter (somewhere warm).
