Pastor Charlie Arms is originally from Knoxville, TN.
He did not grow up in church, but came to faith just after High School. While involved in a college ministry, he was asked to fill in speaking at a local church… and wound up serving as their pastor while he finished college. Charlie has a seminary degree and has served 20+ years in ministry, including previously planting a new church in Florida. In his heart, Charlie believes church planting is the single best way to reach people who are disconnected from church. Charlie played football at East Tennessee State University and has been a life-long sports fan! He is a Cowboys fan, but really loves NCAA football best… mostly rooting for his hometown Tennessee Vols. In his spare time, he enjoys movies. Charlie is a closet Trekkie and lover of everything Sci-Fi.
Charlie’s wife, Rebecca, is a native Coloradoan, hailing from a small town just east of Denver (and yes, she is a Broncos fan!). She gave her life to Christ while attending a college ministry and served as a youth pastor at her home church in Colorado. Rebecca has a diverse background, including Master’s work in Geology, published articles in the field of Paleontology, a degree in Russian, a military background in Naval Intelligence, and much more! She loves to be creative in quilting, crocheting, scrapbooking, etc. She enjoys using her artistic skills in the church to create visual media for worship.
Charlie and Rebecca are proud parents Amalia (18) and Charles (16). Amalia will be graduating this year from Crown Point High School and heading to Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana this fall to become a full-time student in the Department of Political Science. Charles is a sophomore at Crown Point, where he also plays basketball for the Bulldogs! His interest is the field of Genetics and he hopes to eventually enter a program for Genetics in college upon graduation. Amalia serves on our Club Mo Nursery Staff. Charles helps with church events and occasionally assists with our setup and breakdown crew in Crown Point. They are both actively involved in Velocity Youth @ Momentum Church!
