Dr. Charles Jennings
Role: Lead Pastor

Senior Pastor Chuck Jennings has been leading the Flock that is Ridgewood Bible Church for over 13 years. A native of Miami, Florida, Pastor Jennings has slowly followed the Lord northward in his ministry journey. After trusting Christ

in high school at an informal Bible study, Pastor determined to pursue a full-time ministry direction and therefore began attending Florida Bible College, where he received his Bachelor's degree. By then, too, he had married Debbie, a decision that has led to over 30 wonderful years of marriage and 5 children! From Florida, he moved up to Washington, DC, where he earned a Master's of Theology at Capital Bible Seminary. While there, he directed New Life Bible Camp for two years.He also taught Bible and coached basketball at a Christian academy before taking his first pastorate at Fort Howard Community Church, near Baltimore. After six years of fruitful ministry at Fort Howard, Pastor Jennings embraced a new challenge and accepted an invitation to shepherd Ridgewood Bible Church. So, the Jennings Family invested in winter coats and wool socks and headed north to the Buffalo area. Although he had never been anywhere colder (RBC is actually 45 minutes north of Buffalo, nearly in Lake Ontario!), years later Pastor still testifies that this area is a great place to raise a family. And, his family is basically raised: John is a Lawyer in Rochester, and is married with two boys; Mike is an Elementary Teacher in Lancaster, PA, and is married with one girl; Scott is on staff at Lancaster Bible College in Lancaster, PA, and is married. Rich and Mary are both students at Lancaster Bible College. With less and less family in the house, Pastor has found himself with a little more time to pursue further personal goals. In fact, in 2005, after several years of distance study, Pastor Jennings earned his Doctorate in Ministry from Baptist Bible Seminary. Perhaps even more amazingly, though, in 2004, not long after committing to it and training for it, Pastor completed his first marathon! He continues to train for more, running regularly along the Erie Canal, where he also enjoys some of his most intimate times with the Lord. Pastor looks forward to meeting you at RBC, but watch out, because if he does, you might just be inspired to try things you never would have dreamed you'd be doing! He definitely has that kind of effect on people!
