Pastor Charlie Kuthe and his wife Erin were married on April 24, 1999 in Scottsdale, Arizona, approximately three years after meeting while both were attending the University of Arizona.  Shortly after their marriage they moved to the Boston area where Charlie pursued a Master of Divinity degree at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, which he completed in May 2002.  During this time, Erin continued her career as a high school English and French teacher at a local school.  At the end of his final year at seminary, Charlie was awarded the Parish-Pulpit Scholarship for excellence in preaching, which provided him the opportunity and the funds to live abroad and study preaching for one year.  This took the Kuthes to Edinburgh, Scotland where Charlie earned his Master of Theology in Christian Ethics and Practical Theology from the University of Edinburgh, completed in December of 2003.  His dissertation is in the area of evangelistic expository preaching.  During their year in Scotland Erin was able to continue teaching, this time in a cross-cultural setting.

Shortly after their return to the United States, Charlie and Erin accepted the call to pastor at Georgia Plain Baptist Church and began ministering there in April 2004.  Since that time they have been richly blessed with two beautiful daughters – Naomi Kathleen {born March 9, 2005} and Hannah Audrey {born June 8, 2007}. Pastor Charlie graduated with a Doctor of Ministry at Denver Seminary, in May of 2016.
