After graduating with a B.A. from Mississippi College and a Master of Divinity from New Orleans Seminary, Charles spent 20 years as a minister where he engaged in public speaking, training volunteers, and counseling others. Charles then transitioned to fundraising for the private sector and began leading capital campaigns for churches, working with over 125 churches and raising more than 250 million dollars. Charles’s success in leading capital campaigns is the result of his use of his sense of humor and high energy level to train and motivate church staff and lay people to achieve campaign objectives.
When Charles isn’t traveling and motivating people across the country, he enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf and tennis, and reading.
