Chuck was raised in Southern California by foreign-born parents who instilled an early love for the Scripture. He committed his life to Jesus Christ at an early age and was “confirmed” in a Lutheran Church as a teenager.

Chuck received a Congressional appointment to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Upon graduating with honors, he received his commission in the U.S. Air Force. When he left active duty, he had become Branch Chief of the Department of Guided Missiles at Lowry Air Force Base.

Chuck completed a Masters Degree in engineering at UCLA with additional post-graduate studies in applied mathematics, advanced statistics and information sciences. He earned a Ph.D. from Louisiana Baptist University in Biblical Studies in 1999.

His civilian career began as a systems engineer at TRW, followed by a Senior Analyst position in a “think tank” serving both the intelligence community and the Department of Defense.

Recruited by the Ford Motor Company into a Senior Management position, Chuck established the first international industrial computer network. Leaving Ford to start his own company, he founded a computer networking organization later acquired by Automatic Data Processing (NYSE) to become its Network Services Division.

He subsequently served as a consultant to the Board of Directors of Rockwell International for corporate acquisitions (which included Collins Radio, American Data Systems, and others); and has also participated in over 100 business ventures as a principal, strategic advisor, or turnaround specialist.

During the past 30 years, Chuck has served on the Board of Directors of over a dozen public companies, and was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of six of them.

Career Change:

As a result of a merger, Chuck became Chairman and major shareholder of a publicly owned development company, Phoenix Group International, whose main thrust was to establish a very large international joint business venture with the USSR to provide personal computers to their 143,000 public schools. When the USSR’s political power regime split up, this joint venture unraveled and failed.

Chuck was encouraged by his close friend Hal Lindsey (“Author of the Decade,” by the New York Times), to pursue his long‑time love of teaching the Bible on a full time basis. Chuck had spent over twenty-five years teaching the Word of God under Pastor Chuck Smith at Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, California. During that time he had acquired a large following and over six million of his teaching tapes had been distributed worldwide. Koinonia House was soon formed, with the mission to encourage people to seriously study the Bible as the inerrant Word of God.  In 1992 this ministry was relocated to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and in 2010 an additional ministry was established at The River Lodge in New Zealand.

Koinonia House publishes the monthly Personal UPDATE, which highlights the Biblical relevance of current events, to subscribers worldwide and is available in both print and digital editions. K-House also puts out a weekly online eNews, which reaches over 100,000 subscribers worldwide.

Koinonia House has established the leading Christian presence on the Internet through its website, www.khouse.org. This site also links to the Blue Letter Bible, a comprehensive study resource, co-developed by K-House, featuring an entire hypertexted Bible—with Hebrew and Greek—provided free of charge. Koinonia House products include topical studies and verse-by-verse Bible commentaries in DVD, AudioCD, video and audio download, complete with notes, and both printed and electronic books.

Koinonia House also produces the 66/40 radio broadcast, Chuck’s daily verse-by-verse teaching program. This program is carried on stations overseas as well as in the United States, both in 30-minute and 60-minute formats.

Koinonia Institute, a “think tank for thinking Christians,” has emerged from the extensive following of “K-House” to provide extensive on-line courses on the Internet, and to exploit the network of graduate students, and others, who monitor the strategic trends impacting our lives and ministries. It can be explored on koinoniainstitute.org

Chuck is an author of over one hundred publications (in both print and electronic formats), including Prophecy 20/20Learn the Bible in 24 HoursCosmic Codes, and Alien Encounters (an exposition on Genesis 6).

Chuck met his wife Nancy while at the Naval Academy. They have four grown children and Nancy has her own ministry, called The King’s High Way which also supports a local outreach known as King’s Place.

“On The Level”

Pancho is well known in his community as a local “son gone awry,” only to reappear later on as a compassionate person, changed. In 1990, this new person returned to his hometown of his high school days, and decided to start a home-fellowship in a duplex home on California street. Immediately this fellowship expanded as Pancho was disposed to reach to the down-and-outs, the outcasts, and those who were basically tired of a deep-cultured, dead-religion. Having served his country during the height of the Vietnam era, Pancho received his honorable discharge from the United States Marine Corps. Upon his military release, he immersed into a fast and dark, moral digression — “Trying to make up for the years I missed,” he would quip. Alcoholism (like his father and brother) and drugs were killing him softly.

After a personal tragedy, Pancho was altered and maimed emotionally for life. Alcoholism, chemical dependency, along with the ravishes of mental and emotional anguish compounded his newest encounter with abandonment, loneliness, and rejection:his longtime girlfriend dropped him for another man — Jesus Christ.

A year later Pancho was invited by his former girlfriend, now a Christian, Millie, to a “rock” concert. The year was 1975. The rock concert was held at Costa Mesa Calvary Chapel, a church! Although upset and angry, Pancho listened intently as he heard for the first time the clear message of Jesus Christ. Convicted and broken by such powerful truths, he walked forward to receive the Lord as his personal Lord and savior. A year later, in the very denominational church that was to become his home fellowship for four years, Pancho and Millie were married. Unable to read English properly, Pancho was asked to read scriptures one evening after his conversion during a home-bible study. Soon everyone in the group discovered the deep secret he held for many cruel years. Pancho later confessed and avowed that “If God could help him to read, he would serve Jesus forever!”

After an awakened desire to go to college, he graduated in 1980 from East Los Angeles College, majoring in Business Administration. And true to God’s unfailing promises, Pancho was now a prolific reader and reading soon became his new found joy, even to the present time. It was time for Pancho to fulfill his own promise. In the fall of 1979, Pancho and Millie, expecting twins, decided to attend a local Calvary Chapel in West Covina, California, pastored by a gentleman named Raul Ries.

It was here where Pancho received most of his biblical servant-hood and training. Involved in many of the church ministries for eleven years, he was asked by pastor Raul to join the echelons of church leadership. In 1989 the divine clarion call to go back to his youth hometown was received and acknowledged. Receiving the pastoral right hand of fellowship, his venture began as he returned to Montebello to start a home-fellowship.

Two years later the home-fellowship, now well over two hundred members, had moved to a larger facility, a community building aptly named Taylor Ranch, a converted barn. A short year later, the church made a bold, innovative move: Sunday morning services in the local high school auditorium. On July 12, 1992, Calvary Chapel Montebello was officially a church. Pastor Raul Ries provided the dedication message on that special day.

In July of 1995 the church made yet another daring turn. They moved to a 98,000 sq.ft. building, formerly a warehouse.

By now the congregation consisted of eight hundred adults. Two years later, on August 1997, something so huge, and supernatural occurred: the building became the property of Calvary Chapel Montebello. The congregation purchased the entire property! The church is now ministering to more than 3,000 adults and 1000 children. There is always a church activity going on each day of the week.

Pancho continues to share his straight-ahead, straight-up style of teaching. While he is still going through the divine refinement process, and lacking polished public-speaking abilities, he nevertheless will not shy away from these impediments, and will exploit any opportunity given to share the message of Christ any place, anywhere.

He strongly believes that Jesus Christ is the only answer and hope for this dying world.
