I’ve been in ministry for 33 years—21 of those as a senior pastor. I’ve served in churches of over 1,000 congregants in associate roles. I’ve also planted a church, raised three kids, and written three books with my fourth due out in April 2015.

I’m the new senior pastor of West Park Church in London, Ontario, Canada.

I started StoneWell ministries to help pastors and churches get unstuck. I coach pastors, consult with churches, speak, train and write about leadership, church ministry, and the neuroscience application to leadership to help Christian leaders achieve their fullest kingdom potential. Watch the video below for more about me and StoneWell ministries.


“With 30 years of healthy ministry behind him, Charles understands the challenges pastors and churches face today. If something is keeping you or your church stuck, he can help you navigate out. I highly recommend Charles to train your team, guide you toward greater vision clarity, or speak at your event.” —Lance Witt, former executive pastor, Saddleback Church, Author of Replenish

“In my 25 years working in book publishing, Charles is in that “top 5%” of authors whose words on paper are as equally compelling as when delivered live to an audience.” Kyle Duncan, book editor for 5 Ministry Killers

What is NeuroLeadership?

I believe leaders must think well to lead well, so I integrate neuroleadership insight into the art of Christian leadership. View the animated videos below for more on this cutting-edge teaching.
