Staff & Leadership
We're fortunate to have a diverse team of talented and experienced staff who link arms to grow a community of helping de-churched skeptics live like Jesus forever. From the stage to the parking lot, our team brings their gifts and passions to every aspect of what makes SouthBrook what it is.
Through PLAY, our staff discovered their Spiritual Abilities—gifts that, combined with the Spirit of God, make something special of God come out of us to our world. Noted in parens, these Spiritual Abilities reflect how God uses our Personality, Learnings, Abilities and Yearnings to be the hands and feet of Jesus as we engage with the world and make it as God intended.
Charlie has been the Lead Pastor of SouthBrook since 1992. He is driven by a deep concern for those who may feel like they don’t belong in a church and a sincere hope that anyone who struggles with faith can end up with a life that looks like the life of Jesus. Charlie loves his wife Sherry and his kids, Jordan and Austin. He also really likes sharks, sports, and reading about sharks and sports.
All emails and phone calls are directed to Rita Hauser. Depending on the nature of the inquiry, you may be directed to another staff member who is better able to assist.
Shawn came to SouthBrook in 2005 with experience in graphic design, missions, and children's ministry. During his time here, he's helped with all kinds of things from the worship experience to the color of the walls. Shawn and his wife, Amy, love watching their four kids grow (and play a lot of sports). He also has a deep affinity for Meat Loaf (the musician) and honestly, any music from the 90s.
