Faith:

Being brought up with a strong Christian background, his faith is instrumental in his life. It is the guiding force that directs him everyday. 

Charlie shares, “I remember the Saturday night in 1973 when I gave Christ my life. It happened in a Tent Campmeeting in Lenoir, NC. Rev. H. Richard Hall made the call. I found myself in the alter kneeling. I have not been the same since that night.”

He continues, “I can say that in all things, Christ has never stopped loving me. He guides me each day. Do you know him?”

Charlie speaks at various functions and facilitates motivation seminars. He has completed Dale Carnegie courses, ATT-Bell South Selling Power, UCCM Biblical Studies and currently is studying theology online from Liberty University.

Family:

Born in Boone, NC, Charlie is the first born son of Kyle and Geneva Griffin. With three brothers, there was never a dull moment. “We were poor, but we didn’t know it. No one ever told us!” he says. The boys were taught the importance of family, faith and friends. The integrity of those teachings still provides the compass for life’s journey. 
 
Time changes the family. As loved ones pass, new additions are made. Yet the family is still strong. The bond is rooted in respect, love and a deep faith that glues the family together every day.

"Then He Said Sing..."

“It is not about where or who you sing with, but who you sing about that really counts. It is exciting to entertain and laugh in a concert. Yet is more rewarding to know the music uplifts the spirit, soothes a troubled soul and gives encouragement many days after the concert. “I Sing Because his grace is real to me” best describes why we all sing.”
