Charles live in Brandon, a suburb of Tampa, FL. He's been married tohislovely andCharles verytalented wife, Debora for 36 years. He has two children; Matthew completed his MBA at UCF & is employed in the business banking sector of Suntrust; Christina, who's both a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) and a Licensed Occupational Therapy Assistant, works side by side with her mother.

In his earlier years (before he became an old man!), Chuck was an avid runner at Boca Raton High School and loved playing racquetball & basketball.  Five knee surgeries later he still hits the road from time to time but leaves the court games to Debora, Matt hew & Christina.

       

Charles committed his life to Christ in May of 1972 (as a high school senior).  After having grown up spending most of his Sundays at the bowling alley with his awesome dad, Al (who passed away in 2003), Charles began attending church (Spanish River Church) for the 1st time in his life.   Shortly thereafter his mother, Jane Ann (who passed away on my birthday in 2008) and sister, Suzi (who resides in Stuart , FL ) also made decisions to trust Christ as Savior.  A few months after a massive heart attack that should have taken his life, Al also made the decision to accept God's wonderful grace of forgiveness.src="images/Img664.jpg"

 

When he & Debora moved back to Tampa from Gaineville in 1979 they were encouraged to find a new church starting in the Temple Terrace area.  James Saxon founded Tampa Bay Presbyterian Church and from a handful of 5-10 people a new vision was birthed.  We grew and matured for some 20 years under James' leadership and will be forever indebted to him for helping take us quite a distance down the road on our spiritual journey.  James has since moved on & is currently a senior pastor at Church of the Apostles in Atlanta , Ga.  

Since that time he'd like to say that the streets have been paved with Teflon as he glided on the ever so clear path of life... but then again he would be fibbing just a bit.  Life has been rich but it has been full of the challenges of losing 6 children to miscarriages as well as the usual host of ills that befall most of us.  He went through a prolonged period of spiritual ambivalence but after studying the book of Job extensively, God graciously removed him from the fog.

 

He's been attending Bay Life Church in Brandon since 1998 & is enjoying the ministry of the church under the tutelage of relative newcomer, Pastor Mark Saunders. I find it quite refreshing since the leadership at Bay Life believes it to be one small piece of the Christian mosaic, attempting to make a difference in the community through spiritual growth & maturity in Christ.  Since it's founding in the early 90's, Bay Life has faithfully maintained its focus to reach those who have not been willing to grace the doors of the "traditional" church.  Tradition is outstanding & God has blessed churches and people who honor Him.  However, by the same token there is also nothing malevolent or heretical about being germane & pertinent.

 

Chuck gained his B.A. in Criminal Justice from USF back in 1978 (he crammed 4 years of school into 6 years!) and 2 years later became involved in the ever so fickle world of finance.  He started Financial Alteratives in 1987 and his office is located in downtown Brandon, Fl.

 

By the way, if you happen to have wandered to this website and want to know more about how you can have peace with God, please email or call me and I’d be more than happy to visit with you.  I spent 18 years of my life thinking that the only way to obtain a “get into heaven free card” was by being good enough to tip the scales in my favor.  I had no idea who Jesus was and had no clue why He came to earth.  Why in the world would the omnipotent God & creator of the universe want to become a mere mortal man?  Why would He choose such a lowly existence & ultimately choose to be beaten, spat upon & nailed to a cross only to die a slow & agonizing death when He was totally innocent of all wrongdoing?  And how could some of his last words be, "Father forgive them for they don't know what they're doing"?  Wow!
