He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Southeast Missouri State University (SEMO) in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  While matriculating at SEMO, he became a Campus Minister at the Baptist Student Center and started a ministry for African-American students.  In 2003, Reverend Charles returned to Saint Louis to continue his education at Covenant Theological Seminary.  It was there he received a Master of Arts degree in Theological Studies. 

Also in 2003, Reverend Charles was called to minister to the youth at the West Side Church where he served as Youth Pastor for six (6) years.  In 2009, God led Reverend Charles to plant The Meeting Place Church in Saint Louis.  After five (5) years of pastoring he returned to West Side where he serves as Minister of Christian Education and Associate Minister.  On February 28, 2018, the West Side Missionary Baptist Church overwhelmingly voted that Reverend Charles would become Co-Pastor and then Senior Pastor at the Retirement of his father on January 13, 2019.
