Charles is passionate about the manifested presence of God. He desires to see the Father’s true Biblical leadership of Ehp.4:11 taking their position of grace and authority and working towards seeing true Biblical unity in the Spirit and in the unity of the faith within the body of Christ.
In October 2019, Pastor Charles asked folks on a social media platform to perform a task. He wanted to develop a brand for promoting and marketing his books. To complete this task, he needed to know how others perceived him and the ministry he had been doing for over 40 years. Therefore, he asked anyone on social media who really knew him to send 1 to 5 adjectives that best described his character personality, “that which makes Charles, who he is,” from their perspective.
He was overwhelmed and humbled by the influx of words given. Simple words like “thank you” don’t express how deeply moved he felt, but it is all he has to show how grateful he was over their kindness. He gave a big thank you and sent his love to those who graciously responded. Now, after having compiled the comments from the request, Pastor Charles has formed a statement that has branded him and his lifetime ministry.
