Pastor Charlie and wife Coco Lewis have 4 school-aged children; Trent, Emma, Chas and Jed. In addition, their eldest daughter Jessie and her husband Nick have presented them with two wonderful grandchildren. Charlie and Coco both devote their time to coaching and cheering the many sports their kids participate in and Charlie is involved in local chambers and civic groups.
Charlie is originally from St. Simons Island, GA and graduated from University of Georgia. He entered the corporate world of banking with Barnett Bank in 1989 and was a commercial lender for nine years. During this time, he earned a MBA from University of North Florida. The best deal that he made during his banking days was his marriage to Coco Peterson in 1997. Although Charlie enjoyed the business world, God had other plans and led him to attend Reformed Theological Seminary and become a minister.
Pastor Charlie and his family moved to the South Shore area to start Christ Community Church. As a church we are growing both in numbers and in depth. Our community consists of people who have been followers of Christ for some time, those new to the Christian faith, and others who are cautiously curious about Christianity. God is bringing together people who are excited about finding life in Christ and navigating through life with a dependence upon Him.
