Devotional

Dr. Chuck Herring
Senior Pastor
Collierville First Baptist Church, Collierville

After receiving his degree from Mississippi State, Chuck started coaching high school football. One summer, God called an audible and led him to preach.

Chuck and his wife Darlene prayed and felt that this was God’s will. He resigned his coaching position and moved the family to New Orleans where he received M.Div. and D.Min. degrees.

Chuck has pastored churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.

When God brought Chuck’s family to Collierville, He directed him to provide spiritual leadership, to preach His Word, to minister to the hurting, and to challenge the Body to make a difference for His kingdom.
