He has pastored churches in Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia, among those churches being Burkhalter Baptist Church where he served over twenty years as senior pastor. He has a passion for preaching, a love for God's people and a desire to see the lost saved. He received the Lord as his Savior at the age of 8, made public his call to ministry when he was 11, and preached his first sermon when he was 13. He and his wife Linda have three children and six grandchildren. Pastor Charlie has a burden for the family and has led several marriage retreats and family conferences over the last 25 years.
