Dr. Charles Speelman
Director of Missions
I am a native of Northern California and have lived in the High Desert since 1989. My wife Sally and I were married in 1976 and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. I received the Lord in 1979 and have been serving the Lord in pastoral ministry since 1982. During this time, I have served as Director of Missions in the High Desert Baptist Association; I have been on staff at two churches and have planted two churches. Internationally I have been leader of more than 60 short term missions teams and trained many pastors. I have been overseer of the efforts of two pastoral networks. Locally I have co-facilitated the pastoral prayer network in the Victor Valley area and continue to serve as a member and elder at The Gate Church of the High Desert in Victorville, CA.
