Pastoral Team

Charles Jennings

Lead Pastor

Pastor Jennings has been leading Ridgewood Bible Church since 1992.

A native of Miami, Florida, Pastor Jennings has slowly followed the Lord northward in his ministry journey. After trusting Christ the summer before his senior year of  high school at a summer camp, 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, he had married Debbie, a decision that has led to over 40 wonderful years of marriage and 5 children and  12 grand-children! From Florida, he moved up to Washington, DC, where he earned a Master’s of Theology at Capital Bible Seminary.   In 2005, Pastor Jennings earned his Doctorate in Ministry from Baptist Bible Seminary.  Pastor looks forward to meeting you at RBC!
