"Will You not revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You?" (Psalm 85:6)
Street Evangelism will begin the week of March19th; 5:30 P.M. Revival Preaching Monday, March 26th - Wednesday, March 28th beginning at 7:00pm nightly.
Guest Revivalist will be Reverend H. B Charles, Jr., Pastor of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church of Jacksonville, Florida. After the death of his father Rev. H. B. Charles, Sr., he succeeded him as pastor of Mount Sinai Missionary Baptist Church of Los Angeles, California. He was a seventeen-year-old senior at Los Angeles High School at the time. After graduating from high school, he studied at a small Bible college in Anaheim, California that provided the opportunity for him to further his education while serving Mount Sinai Missionary Baptist Church. But he was only able to complete a couple of semesters of study before his increasing pastoral responsibilities necessitated his full attention. However, this short time of formal study introduced H.B. to expository preaching. And he has since been a growing and faithful student of Bible exposition.
Over the course of Rev. Charles’ pastorate, his love for God’s Word, the church, and lost people, have been obvious to both the membership of MSMBC and the larger church community. This has resulted in balancing his pastoral responsibilities with speaking engagements in revivals, conferences, and other church events around the Greater Los Angeles area and across the country. This includes denominational service on the local, state, and national levels.
In 2002, he was graciously invited to contribute a chapter to the John Knox/Westminster Press publication, Power in the Pulpit, edited by Dr. Cleophus J. LaRue. H.B. continues to seek further education to help fulfill his prayerful desire to write and teach alongside his calling to pastoral ministry.
On July 30, 2008, Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church of Jacksonville, Florida, ended a seven-month search for a pastor when the church unanimously called Rev. Charles, Jr., as pastor. He prayerfully accepted God’s call to be the next shepherd to lead Shiloh.
