Our EFCA mission is to multiply transformational churches among all people. That’s why I’m excited about the work God is doing with the Wilson family as they begin their new season of ministry in Roanoke, Virginia.
Charles and His wife Tranay began serving in youth ministry at their home church in South Jersey in 1999. Together they have been blessed with two amazing sons, Kyree, who is a sophomore year at Liberty University, and Charles III, who is a junior in high school. Over the years, they served their church in several capacities. In 2008, the Wilson’s relocated to Dallas, TX where Charles accepted a position as a youth pastor. Several years later, Charles was hired as the Associate Pastor of Student ministry at a church in the North Dallas area where he served for over 7 years.
Just a few weeks ago, on August 12, they held a prayer walk, enlisting friends from Dallas, New Jersey and Roanoke to pray with them for the new ministry, for the people in the community and to better understand why the Lord was calling them to this city. The same day, less than two hours away, we all witnessed the tragic events that took place in Charlottesville. This was confirmation why a multiethnic and multicultural church is desperately needed.
In addition to working beside her husband, Tranay is a graphic and web designer who has a passion for bringing creativity to churches who need creative direction. She currently runs her own graphic and web design company called Cre8ed design.
