On my arrival to South Carolina in the summer of 1986, one of the first people I met was Charles Holmes. A graduate of Wofford College, Charles worked in the timber industry and served on the Board of the South Carolina Forestry Association.
Charles and his family got involved with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) on the local level, and before long he was serving as an active member of the FCA State Board.
In 1993, Charles came to me and offered to help us expand in the Lowcountry/Charleston area as a volunteer FCA staff member. After serving with FCA for three years, his life on earth was suddenly cut short when he died in an airplane accident.
Charles found joy and fulfillment serving God through FCA. He dedicated his life, resources and gifts to bringing God’s love and salvation through Jesus Christ to countless young people and coaches through this ministry.
