About Us

Church of God Ministries:


The Church of God (Anderson, Indiana) is a worldwide movement of people seeking to fulfill God’s desire for the church. We are committed to studying the Word of God and faithfully living it out. We are committed to being the body of Christ in spirit, word, and deed. We commit ourselves to the mission that Jesus Christ gave every believer: to make disciples of all nations. We seek to love and serve all people, beginning with those within our sphere of activity and influence.

 (Lesson Author):

A true Southern gentleman with a pastor’s heart, Charles has provided church growth, renewal, visioning, and consultation services to over 1,500 congregations. An avid sportsman, pilot, family man, and traveler, his gracious and unselfish attitude are reflected in his willingness to set those interests aside when he has an opportunity to extend help to a church in need.

These “Next Step” Lessons have been taken from his book, entitled “Stretching and Growing“.  To order a hard copy, simply click here.
