Curator of Exhibits
Chuck began work at Kauffman Museum in 1985 as an exhibit builder and craftsman. Working closely with Bob Regier, Bethel College art professor and Kauffman Museum exhibit designer, Chuck gradually took on a larger role in exhibit design. Chuck has led Kauffman Museum’s consulting work for a number of other museums, including permanent exhibits at the Stauth Memorial Museum in Montezuma, KS and the Penrose Heritage Museum in Colorado Springs. Chuck grew up in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where his parents worked with the Mennonite Central Committee in agricultural development and public health. He graduated from Bethel College in 1981 with Industrial Arts and Bible and Religion degrees and has lived in Newton ever since. Married to Cindy Bertsche Regier (’82), their children all graduated from Bethel. Chuck is passionate about cooking, biking and raises chickens and rabbits at their in-town home.
