Charlie received his Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education with a minor in Biology in 1971 and graduated with his Master’s degree in 1973, both at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. He taught biology and coached in public schools until arriving in Belton, Texas as the head baseball coach at the University of Mary Hardin – Baylor in 1977. There he served as baseball coach for four years, Dean of Students for two years and then Vice-president for six years. It was then, after being discipled there, that First Baptist Church called him to serve full-time on their staff.
Charlie retired in June 2014 but has not retired from ministry and has continued to ‘equip the saints’ in Evangelism, Discipleship, 1-on-1 Disciple-making and Sunday School. He has served at the public school level, university level, the local church, an international ministry and most recently as interim pastor in Munich, Germany for 3 months and returned last fall for another 7 weeks of service.
Throughout his 39 years as a member and then as a staff member at FBC he experienced the disciple-making process from both sides as one who was first discipled by Godly men upon arriving there and then challenged and equipped to do the same from that time until today. His greatest passion is to see people come into an eternal relationship with Jesus Christ and then to spend a lifetime making Him known and helping others grow in His likeness. He currently serves as a lay leader at Lakeview Baptist Church in Belton training Sunday School leaders and equipping members in evangelism and discipleship.
Charlie has been married to Janice for 43 years and has a daughter Stacie, who also lives in Belton, Tx with her husband, Matt, and his awesome grandson’s, Kyle, 15 and Noah, 12. It is his desire to finish strong in the final quarter of his life preaching, training in evangelism and training and equipping lay men and women in ‘one-on-one’ disciple-making so they can do the same for generations to come.Watch Message
