Charles Marino grew up in Rockford, Illinois attending North Love Baptist Church. During a Christian school chapel in January 2008, Charles received Christ as his Savior. Sitting under the preaching of Pastor Paul Kingsbury, Charles felt the call to preach and after much prayer and deliberation, attended Heartland Baptist Bible College. Once he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Theology, he moved to Fritch, Texas to volunteer as the youth director at Faith Baptist Church.
In 2015, Charles married his college sweetheart, Crystal. They reside in Fritch, laboring at the church while both working secular jobs.
