Here's what some of Charlie's clients are saying:

"Charlie was my first coach as an interim pastor.  He was a great help, particularly with his recommendations on reading material in handling the nuances that occur in a pastor's abrupt departure which necessitates an interim.  Charlie's encouragement is invaluable and I truly appreciated his insight into ministry."- Interim Pastor Ralph Wingate.

"I have observed first-hand Charlie Worley's passion and excitement for church planting. I could not have successfully planted my church without his coaching and expertise." – Church Planter Kevin Putman.

"Pastor Charlie provided the leadership needed to bring our church out of a discouraging time into one of restored hope. He continually challenged us to think outside the box but provided us with tools to set achievable goals. I was energized and encouraged with each meeting! Charlie was straight forward but kind and gentle in moving us forward. I am so grateful for his ministry!" – Judy Banz, Transition Team and Pastor Search Team member.
