Changing Lives through Grace
The pastoral staff of Charis Christian Center are devoted to preaching and teaching the Word of God with a revelation of grace. In addition to our pastoral leadership team and board, we employ Associate Pastors who specialize in children, youth, outreach and more.
Lawson and Barbara Perdue
Lawson and Barbara Perdue are the senior pastors of Charis Christian Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Pastor Lawson was spirit-filled and called to preach in 1978 through the ministry of Andrew Wommack. He received his bachelor’s degree from Dr. Lester Sumrall’s World Harvest Bible College.
Lawson and Barbara stepped into full-time ministry in 1988. For the past 30 years they have been actively involved in church planting, teaching in Bible schools, establishing new ministries, and missions.
Pastor Lawson teaches the Bible in a practical way focusing on grace and faith. Barbara teaches on a regular basis as well, encouraging believers to lay hold on all the promises of God. They have three sons who have all grown up to love God, their families, and be successful in their callings.
Dr. Aaron and Heather Perdue
Dr. Aaron Perdue is the associate pastor and is Lawson and Barbara’s oldest son. As a teacher, he emphasizes a practical application of the Word to empower others to reach their full potential in life. In addition to teaching, he oversees the small group ministry and helps with administration. Aaron has performed as a classical musician throughout the world and holds degrees from Carnegie Mellon University and Rice University. His desire is to see the church body flourish and impact the world with the gospel. Aaron, his wife Heather, and their son Fisher enjoy taking adventures throughout the beautiful state of Colorado.
