About Chuck
  • Education: BA in Secondary Education, June 1977 from Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga TN.
  • Experience: Chuck was assistant pastor in two churches in the U.S. before becoming a missionary to the U.S. military with Baptist International Missions, Inc. Chuck was the missionary-pastor of 3 missionary works in Wiesbaden, Germany; Bicester, England; and is presently pastoring Grace Baptist Church in Grafenwoehr, Germany. The 2 churches in Germany were/are predominantly military churches. The church in England was turned into an English church, and is now indigenous and self-supporting.
  • Family: My wife, Susan, and I were married on AUG 10, 1974. Susan has been an incredible helpmeet, co-worker in the 5 churches we have ministered in, and serves at the admin assistant of Grace Baptist Church. We have 3 great sons: Chris is a worship leader in Chicago, Il., and with his wife, Sarah, have two children. Jon is an back in school to become a PA. Allen is married to Brooke and is in the Air Force.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They thought I was one of the greatest preachers of the 20th Century. They were deluded, but I loved them for it.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She says I get better with every passing year.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: I visited an old preacher and hero of mine we called Preacher Michel in Durham, NC while he was on his deathbed. A young preacher, I asked him, "Preacher Michel, if you could give this young preacher one word of advice before you go on to glory, what would it be?" Without skipping a beat, he said, "Check your fly before you get up to preach!" All kidding aside, the best word of advice I ever heard was from Bill Gothard: Teach people HOW to do things for God, not just TO DO them.
  • Books that have had an impact: Recently: The Faith of God's Elect, by John F. Parkinson. Gave me a biblical understanding of election, not one funneled through the sieves of either philosophical systems of Calvinism or Arminianism. Lordship Salvation, by Charles Bing, Absolutely Free, by Zane C. Hodges & The Reign of the Servant Kings by Joseph C. Dillow. Cleared up the old Lordship Salvation vs. Free Grace argument for me. Heaven, by Rnady Alcorn. Made me wish I could go there now.
  • Hobbies: Reading.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. There is NOTHING more you must do to inherit eternal life, have a relationship with God and live eternally in heaven. Just take God at his Word and "BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST."
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: In reviewing the previous week's Sun. PM study onDavid & Bathsheba, w/o forethought, I asked the mixed audience, "When David tried to get Bathsheba's husband to 'go in to her', what do you think he wanted them to do?" It got very quiet & I realized that didn't come out exactly as I meant it. One of our precious black ladies (we were about 40% black) spoke up & said, "Pastor, they was fellowshippin'." The crowd erupted. We never could announce a "fellowship" after that w/o snickers after that.
  • What I want on my tombstone: He gave his all for Jesus, his family and to others.

  • What Does "All" Mean?

    Contributed on Apr 14, 2013
    based on 1 rating

    WHAT DOES "ALL" MEAN? I know people who are carrying around a load of guilt over the past and they're loaded down with this extra weight God doesn't want them to have. I remember a lady in my church in Wiesbaden I'll call Jill. Jill had rebelled against her parents, had been on drugs, had had more

  • Corporate Discipleship

    Contributed on Jan 6, 2013

    CORPORATE DISCIPLESHIP Did you know that there is not a single case of "one-on-one discipleship" in the New Testament? The choice to become and remain a disciple rests with individuals, but discipleship is always nurtured corporately. Discipleship is not a course you go through; it’s a life you more

  • Fulfilling Your Purpose

    Contributed on Apr 24, 2012

    FULFILLING YOUR PURPOSE When we lived in Wiesbaden, some missionary friends bought a German toaster. When they got home, they plugged it in, placed some bread in it, and then waited for the toast to pop up a few minutes later. Well, the toast never did pop up from it because...well, it didn’t more

  • Predestination

    Contributed on Mar 19, 2012
    based on 2 ratings

    PREDESTINATION Rather than predetermining a person’s FATE, predestination predetermines a believer’s FOCUS—that is, God’s eternal purposes, goals and privileges for him. Every instance of the word “predestinate” in the New Testament refers to some purpose, goal or privilege that God has more
