H.B. Charles Jr. has been preaching expositional Bible messages at Shiloh Metropolitan Church in    Jacksonville, Florida, where I have served since the fall of 2008. I am primarily responsible for preaching-teaching, vision casting, and leadership development – along with all the other tasks that are a part of pastoral ministry.

Prior to coming to Shiloh, I led the Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church of Los Angeles for almost eighteen years.  Succeeding my late father,  I began my pastorate at Mt. Sinai at the age of seventeen – a senior in high school.

Outside of my ministry to and with my congregation, I regularly speak at churches, conferences, and conventions around the country. I have contributed to several books and journals. And I write at this blog site about life, preaching, church, books, and other stuff. I publish new posts 3-4 times a week.

“I love God’s people and I love the Word of God!  I have committed my life to teach, encourage and arm pastors and teachers with sound doctrine through expository preaching that will empower their preaching and further the impact of the gospel.

The Cutting It Straight  Conference aims to change the world by exposing pastors to Bible preaching and true doctrine!

This conference offers wonderful examples of expository preaching.  If you need to be convinced of the value of expository preaching or encouraged in its practice, then listen to these lectures of our guests.

Expository preaching explains what the text means by what it says. The focus of exposition is to explain and apply the intended point of the text.  I am a student of expository preaching.  It is what I strive to do most weeks. There are times when I do more topical messages on biblical themes.  But I am convinced that consecutive exposition through Books of the Bible is the most faithful way to preach.

Join me September 19-21, 2017 in Jacksonville, Florida for a wonderful time in the word, fellowship and exposition.
