Pastor Chuck Scott
Pastor Chuck was born in Jacksonville, FL, on August 6, 1949. He graduated from Norcross High School, in Norcross, GA in June of 1967. After graduation, he secured a position with Delta Airlines in Atlanta, GA, where he worked until retiring on December 31, 2001.
In 1970, he met Beverly Barrett, and the two were married on April 3, 1971. In 1972, they were blessed with the birth of their 1st child, a daughter, whom they named Laura Joyce. Some 4 years later, in 1976, they were blessed with their 2nd child, a son, whom they named Michael Dennis.
In 1972, the Lord began to place a calling on Pastor Chuck's life, and he and Beverly began to feel the urge to get involved in church. Over the course of the next 20 years, Pastor Chuck and Beverly were involved in various churches, and became very active in the various positions of leadership. Pastor Chuck was a teacher, Deacon, Elder, Missions Committe Chairman, Treasurer, Chairman of the Deacon Board, as well as holding other church positions. Pastor Chuck began to realize his calling was yet to be fulfilled. He began to seek God's will with a passion, and realized that God's calling was to start an independent Baptist church.
The first service of Charity Baptist was held on July 7th, 1996 in the Scott's home in Jonesboro, GA. Pastor Chuck was ordained in December, 1996. He was Senior Pastor until October of 2014, when he became Pastor Emeritus of Charity Baptist.
