Charles felt the call to preach as a boy and began preaching while still in school. After
graduation he traveled and held revivals. He pastored his first church at the age of 19, in
Oklahoma, but left to attend Southwestern Bible Institute in Waxahachie. He met the love of
his life, Inus Johnson, while holding a revival in Leeds, Alabama. They were married in 1956 and
over the next 64 years they pastored 24 churches in Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas,
Tennessee, and Missouri. His memorization of scripture was profound, and he used it often in
his preaching. He was ordained with the Assemblies of God for over 59 years.
He wrote over 200 songs, some of which were recorded by other people. He played several
instruments including guitar, piano, mandolin, and fiddle.
He loved to read and always kept an extensive library of books. His favorite book was the Bible,
but it had to be the King James Version.
His favorite hobby was fishing, and his favorite food was anything served by Inus. He was proud
of his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He loved God, his family, and the
ministry.
He lived a full and rich life, while faithfully serving the kingdom of God with his whole heart.
