Senior Pastor Charles Pretlow
It was in 1973, when Charles accepted Christ, just after his reenlistment in the Marines for six more years. Then in 1974, after reading David Wilkerson's book The Vision, he accepted Christ's call to full time ministry, and requested an early release from the Corps. Miraculously, his honorable discharge was granted.
In January of 1975 he began Bible College and accepted his first ministry appointment. His years of formal education and leadership training has helped him in ministry. However, his more in-depth training, wisdom, and character development was honed through years of ministering in a wilderness type training, facilitated by Jesus in the discipline of the Lord.
His call is helping Christians become tribulation proof and rapture ready. Most Christians are not prepared for the coming troubles that God will use to make His church "without spot or blemish" - if you will, rapture ready.
