Seven Questions with Charles Woods

Director of Missions, Sierra Butte
This week we have the honor of introducing you to the Sierra Butte Director of Missions, Charles Woods. Published author and pastor of Feather River Church -- Charles actively searches for new ways and methods to bring people to church. He and his wife Christine have shared many wonderful years together. They have two grown children, six grandchildren, and one great-grand child (with another one set to arrive in less than a month!). Charles enjoys coin collecting and has established quite a rock collection – a sight to be seen by many visitors in fact!

1. What biblical character (other than Jesus) would you want to meet, and why?

That’s a great question because there are SO many that I would like to meet and will meet someday! Moses, Daniel, Elijah, Paul…I better stop there because I will just name everyone in the Bible. They were the ones who faced some of the hardest problems that you can face and yet remained so faithful and continued to proclaim God's Word without even stopping and thinking about it.

2. In-N-Out or Chick-fil-A?

Chick-fil-A. But if we're talking chicken, I think I prefer Raising Cane's.

3. What has been an evangelistic tactic that has worked best for you?

Okay, there used to be a seminar called “Continual Witnessing Training” back in the 80’s. I still use that without thinking about it because it was so, so good about being able to relate to people. My evangelistic approach is relating to people and seeing what their needs are. God's gift is being able to discern what is going on under the surface in one's life and being able to bring that out … then we show them how Jesus can bring about the healing in their life. Glory to God to be able to bring somebody to Christ through relational relationships.

4. If you could visit any place in the world, where would it be and why?

That's a very good question because we have visited so many places. I think I’d like to visit the states that we have not yet been to (which are very few at this point). Alaska and about eight states in the Northeast, like Maine, New York, Vermont, … those states. I'd like to be able to just visit them and see more of their culture and how Christians relate to each other there.

5. Tell us something that nobody knows about you.

Not very many know this except for people who have read one of my books. I have a nickname, Bubby, that my three brothers gave me before they died, and I hold on to it pretty close. What they meant by it was, "this is our little brother, and we will take care of him."

6. What is one piece of advice you would give to your younger self?

Make God’s Word the center of your life and in everything you do, let it come from God’s Word being the center of your life.

7. When you think through all the names of Christ, what name resonates with you right now and why?

Jesus, because that simply says so much about who He is.
