Charles has lived in the Belvoir community all of his life. He gave his life to Jesus at this church in 1970 and began serving as Gum Swamp’s Choir Director in May of 1999. Charles is a farmer by trade and enjoys singing and playing the guitar. He firmly believes that music helps to set the tone of the worship service and allows Jesus to speak to you individually. He encourages everyone to lift their voices in song as a means of worshiping God and allowing Him to speak to your hearts through the message in song. Gum Swamp has a very active choir. Charles invites anyone from 6th grade to age 100 to join us. He wants you to put a smile on your face, open up your heart, and let your God-given talent be used!
