Pastors Paul & Charmaine Earle met in 1985 at an Easter retreat as teens and after a long courtship got married in August 1993. After four children and over twenty years of marriage, they enjoy serving together at Life Church in the ministry of making disciples that make disciples.
Pastor Paul started his career in business and corporate management before the Lord called him into fulltime ministry at his local church in Kingston, Jamaica. With a burning in his heart to participate in the great commission, Paul served in local evangelism, mission projects and church planting in Tanzania. In 1998, Paul, Charmaine and their children moved to Pasadena, California. Paul studied at Fuller Seminary's school of World Missions and Charmaine completed her residency in Family Medicine at University of Southern California.
Paul is passionate about preaching the Word with insight and practical application. He is gifted in delivering 'mixed feed' that is, teaching with simple truth so that the new Christian is inspired and also with profound revelation, that the veteran saint is challenged deeper. His desire is to see missional and multiplying disciples of Jesus take their place in advancing the redemptive purposes of God in the earth.
Charmaine has a heart for worship that is contagious. She leads the Life congregation before the throne of God to celebrate and serenade Jesus. She operates in a powerful anointing for deliverance and inner healing. Charmaine is a gifted teacher of the word and demonstrates a life of practical holiness. As one of the leading physicians in our community, Doctor Charmaine ministers to people daily at the two Family Practice clinics operated by the Earles.
Our pastors believe in the central role of the family and once you meet them you will feel the island hospitality and the overflowing favor of God.
