Our Pastor

“Those who are planted in the house of the Lord, shall flourish in the courts of our God” – Psalm 92:13-15

Pastor Chuck Ramsey has deep roots at Restoration Church.  Raised in a pastor’s home, Chuck became the Youth Pastor at Restoration Church after graduating from Lee University and later went on to travel the United States evangelizing.  In 2017, he returned to Restoration Church to assume the role of Lead Pastor. 

Pastor Chuck’s love for people only comes second to his love for the living Word of God.  You will find he does not lead from afar, but instead leads from within the trenches, in the midst of the storms, in the hottest part of the furnace. 

Both he and his wife Candace love their flock so deeply, and shepherd with a burden for the lost and brokenhearted. They have been gifted with unique wisdom and experience in leading their marriage and family through life’s challenges evident not only in their own spiritual calling, but also through their 7 children and 5 grandchildren.

More than just a passionate leader, Pastor Chuck is committed to boldly preach the Truth of God’s Word, committed to prayer being the engine of the church, committed to following Holy Spirit’s lead, and committed to lifting the name of Jesus over any religious traditions or empty routines.
