Pastor Charlie and his wife, Gail, grew up in the Fallbrook area, and were married in 1978. The Lord saved them at the same time in July of 1991. They have three married children, Jessica, Dustin, and Kristen, and one grandchild, Jenna Evangeline. Charlie worked for North County Fire for 32 years and retired as Deputy Chief. When the Lord saved Charlie, He gave him a desire to minister to other firefighters.

With encouragement from Pastor Clark, Charlie started a Chaplain program at North County Fire and was privileged to serve as Chaplain from 1994 until he retired from the fire service in 2008. At this time, the Lord gave Charlie and Gail a heart to minister to missionaries. They are honored and blessed to serve along side the saints at the Barn as they oversee missions, address the missionaries’ needs, and experience the joy of sending out those the Lord calls.
