Charles graduated with a BA in Computer Science from Indiana University. After several years working in the business sector with multiple companies, he completed a Master of Divinity at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2011.
Charles came to Mountain View as Youth Pastor in 2013, then later transitioned into the role of Associate Pastor. He became Senior Pastor in Fall 2021.
Charles loves bringing expository preaching to the church. He believes the church grows strong when the Word of God is taught with an emphasis on specific application to our daily lives.
Charles and his wife (who is amazing) have three children (who are a blast). In his free time Charles enjoys hiking the mountains and trails of Utah, visiting National Parks, reading (especially military history), whitewater rafting, and playing violin.

I became a follower of Jesus Christ in 1961, when I accepted him as my Lord and Savior.
I served in the United States Air Force for twenty four years, going to Vietnam, and Desert
After retiring from military service, I was asked to help out and work with the Senior Pastor, Bill
Lacy at Mountain View Baptist Church as Minister of Education and Administration. I have to
admit this was not what I wanted to do, God had his plan. I couldn’t believe how I fit into that
ministry. God really blessed me and my family.
It was time to leave after six years and I joined the LifeWay Christian Organization as Store manager for both the Ogden and Salt Lake City Store from 2000-2004. God called me back into church ministry at First Baptist Church West Valley City as Minister of Education/Associate Pastor from 2004-2011, during my time at the West Valley church I took classes on Church Leadership at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary and graduated 2010. Went back to work for LifeWay as Church consultant for one year before all the LifeWay stores decided to go another direction.
