“For God makes Everything Beautiful at just the right time; he has set eternity in the hearts of men,
yet they could not perceive it.” -King Solomon, Ecclesiastes 3:11
God is good and sovereign.
All men are created by God and for God’s glory.
We have the privilege and responsibility to share the love of Jesus Christ with everyone we meet.
This is the life-giving message of Everything Beautiful. It awakens our souls to the passion and purposes of God!
Our Mission is to demonstrate and proclaim the love of Jesus Christ in our neighborhood and in the nations.
Charles is the Founder and Director of Everything Beautiful.
He delights to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in his New Orleans neighborhood of Treme, with the beautiful people of Thailand, and everywhere in-between. His mission is to establish a local church with a global vision.
Before moving to New Orleans in January 2012, Charles served as the Inner-City Director of Fellowship of Christian Athletes in Houston, Texas. Following God’s leadership, his staff equipped and encouraged coaches to lead campus ministries—growing from 4 to 44 schools; directed and served numerous summer camps, retreats, and events; and organized opportunities for a host of churches, volunteers and donors to participate in the ministry. In addition, Charles served as chaplain for the Houston Rockets of the NBA for two seasons. He was a member of Houston’s First Baptist Church.
Charles graduated from East Texas Baptist University in May 2005 with a degree in Religion and Sociology. He was a proud member of the Mens Basketball Team his Junior and Senior seasons, recognized as an Academic All-Conference student-athlete both years. The award he is most proud of was being named the Roger Craig Christian Athlete of The Year, chosen by coaches and given to the varsity athlete which best represented the character of Jesus Christ. He was a member of Bel-Air Baptist Church.
Charles accepted Jesus Christ in a double-wide trailer Baptist church in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, on December 3rd, 2000, during a friend’s wedding weekend. His life immediately changed, and he experienced peace and passion like never before! Charles shared his testimony with the congregation during his baptism at Houston River Baptist Church in Sulphur, Louisiana, and had an overwhelming sense God was calling him to vocational ministry. After wrestling with God about this crazy idea for several months, Charles surrendered— and experienced a string of miracles leading him from working in the oil refineries of Southwest Louisiana to studying at a private Christian University in order to prepare for a life serving Jesus Christ in ministry!
