My name is Charles L. Courtois, Jr. Most people know me as Jr. I was born and raised in Springfield, MO, where I still reside with my wife, Jennelle. We have one son that is disabled, Nic. I came to know the Lord as an adult with only the regret that I didn't open my eyees and heart sooner. After I came to know the Lord and surrendered my life to Him, I began serving in the local church. To borrow a quote from a dear friend, "Nowhere in the Bible does it say after you accept Jesus, that serving is an option!" We are all called to serve. Several years later, I surrendered to the Lord's call and became a licensed minister in May of 2004. A few years later, I was getting comfortable in what God had brought me to in my life. I had a good job, a family and I was doing GearHead Ministries through Evergreen Church when time allowed. Everything was getting comfortable. then God asked, "Will you do GearHead Ministries, Inc full time?" I struggled. I had questions of my own. The how to questions. God assured me that if we would jump off of the cliff with Him, He would teach us how to fly. He assured us if we had the faith, He had all our needs covered. So in January, 2007, I resigned my job and began doing GearHead Ministries, Inc. on a full time volunteer basis.
