From Our Pastor

Welcome to the Hillcrest website! I am so thrilled to be a part of Hillcrest Baptist Church and that you decided to stop by and see what we’re about! As your pastor, I want to be sure to have clear communication with members and visitors. This page is dedicated to just that. Please check back often to hear from me or to get in touch with me. I look forward to hearing from you! Do check back often, as we will be adding new ways to worship, minister and motivate!

Ministry Leadership

He is a graduate of Oakland City University with a BA in Biblical Studies and holds his Master’s from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with a focus on Pastoral Ministry and Christian Education.

Charlie and his wife Mendy have been married for 38 years. They both grew up in Michigan and have continued to be life-long Michigan fans. They have 3 daughters; Abbey, Elizabeth and Emily, and one son, Andrew, with one grandson, William. When not pastoring, Charlie enjoys gathering with his family, spending time on the gulf, playing golf and watching the University of Michigan. Go blue!
