Pastor Charles Milton
Pastor Charles, known as a Trouble-maker in the House of God was raised in Lakewood, NJ. Pastor Charles was taught by his parents, Godly values with emphasis on Honoring and Obeying your parents that your days may be long upon the earth. He is blessed today because of their teaching. On Tuesday April 6, 1975 during a revival in Trenton, NJ, Pastor Charles accepted the Lord as his personal Savior. A night he declares he ‘shall never forget’. Throughout his Christian journey, Pastor Charles experienced the presence of God in his life unlike anything he would have ever imagined.
Pastor Charles received foundational teachings while a member at Faith Tabernacle UHC under the late Pastor James F. McRae; teachings that would surely sustain him through the storms that he would face. After a lengthy illness and subsequent loss of his first wife, Janice in 1995, Pastor Charles entered a dark place. In 1999 Pastor Charles began to sense the pull of the Spirit of God bringing him out of that dark place. He found himself in the pews of Christian Faith Assembly Church being amazed at the Spirit of God that was in this place and on this Pastor, Apostle Dr. Maurice Randolph, Sr. He never left. The teachings Pastor Charles received here was continuing the preparation to the call that God has on his life.
Pastor Charles spent 25 years LOCKED UP, as a Corrections Officer that is, at Albert C. Wagner Youth Correctional Facility in Bordentown, NJ. During this 25 years God used Pastor Charles to impact many lives for the Kingdom. Inmates, custody and staff looked to Pastor Charles for guidance in the Word for their lives. Many souls were added to the Kingdom because of how God chose to use this willing vessel. Now, a Board Certified Chaplain, Pastor Charles plans to use his Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) through the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy (CPSP) under Chaplain Stephen Faller to continue his mission in and out of the church.
Pastor Charles, a graduate of Manna Bible Institute, an avid Sports fan, a man with a heart for men, heard the call to the Pastorate on November 16, 2012. Pastor Charles is the founder and Pastor of Christian Faith Assembly Community Church, in Wake Forest, NC.

Pastor Charles has 2 adult daughters and 1 son (with his deceased wife, Janice) Shannon, Charla and Charles Jr. Once again God smiled upon Pastor Charles by sending him his Angel with an ‘a’, his loving wife Angela. The two married on a beautiful Tuesday evening October 16, 2001. They also have an amazing, modern day miracle grand-sugar, 15 year old Caylah. Pastor Charles and his family reside in the beautiful community of Wake Forest.
One of Pastor Charles’ favorite Scriptures is, Psalm 34:1, “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praises shall continually be in my mouth”.
