Chuck came to First Baptist Knoxville in April of 2021, returning to his Baptist roots, after a decade in the United Methodist Church serving as Youth Director and Associate Pastor at a Methodist Church in West Knoxville from 2012-2021.
Chuck got his degree in Religion from University of the Cumberlands in 2004 and his M.Div from Gardner-Webb University in 2008.
Chuck and his wife Janie, a chaplain at a local hospital, have served churches in North Carolina, Texas, and Tennessee. They now live in Powell with their three daughters, and Chuck likes spending time outside with them, watching good TV shows, reading, cooking, and collecting and making music.
Chuck's desire for the Youth of FBCK is for them to become disciples of Christ who live according to Micah 6:8 - practicing justice, exhibiting loving kindness, and walking humbly with God.
