I’ve been happily married to Melony since 1992, and we’re the proud parents of four children— one married, two in college, and one still at home.
I’ve been the preaching minister at the Hoover church since March 2004, and I love getting to share the good news about Jesus Christ with a group of people who want to know Him better. I believe with all my heart that the story of Jesus is true and that He wants me to talk about Him to as many people as possible.
My sermons are usually based on a single passage in the Bible, and I try to explain what God meant when He put it there, what it teaches us about Jesus, and what it means to us as we face life’s daily challenges. The Bible’s message isn’t hard to understand—though we don’t understand everything it says, of course—but God has a simple message about Jesus that changes our lives. We’re all people who—like you—have made a mess of our lives, but God through Jesus comes to us to bring us back to Him as He helps us pick up the pieces of our brokenness.
That’s the message we share here, and we would love for you come be a part of one of our gatherings.
A little more about Chuck . . .
He grew up in different small towns in Alabama and then moved to a suburb of Memphis as a teenager. He has two older sisters, and the three of them were blessed to be brought up in a Christian home by two godly parents who still live in western Tennessee. He’s got a bunch of preachers in his extended family.
When not doing church stuff, he enjoys hanging out with his wife and kids, reading (various genres: history, biographies, fiction), and watching college football. Sometimes he get serious about running to stay in shape, and sometimes he gets serious about not running at all.
Chuck attended Freed-Hardeman University (B.S., Math), The University of Alabama (M.A., Speech Communication), and Beeson Divinity School (M.Div., Theology), and he’s currently working on his Doctor of Ministry in homiletics at Beeson.
