As the son of a minister, Charles gave his life to Christ at an early age. He loved his church and dedicated his life to serving and ministering to others. Mr. Moore served as Pastor Steward for forty-nine years, retiring his role in March 2018.
Charles was an avid Humanitarian. He led his life promoting the well-being of others thru ministry, financial resources and mentoring kids. One of his favorite outreach ministries was blessing the youth of the church with his annual Christmas Gift Card Giveaways.
