Leadership and Staff

Dr. Charles R. Fox, Jr., Senior Pastor
Dr. Fox, a native of Brooklyn, New York, is the senior pastor of Christ Community Church in Bowie, Maryland. Before coming to CCC, Dr. Fox taught at Regent University at the undergraduate and graduate levels where he served the university in a variety ways such as Faculty Chair of Religious Studies, Director of Urban Outreach, and Director of Field Education. 

During his tenure at Regent University, Dr. Fox was able to balance practical ministry experience and academic rigor in the Regent curriculum based on his eighteen years of experience as a pastor, itinerant minister, Bible teacher and conference speaker. He began his journey in higher education in 1990, at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, where he majored in Physical Education because of his desire to coach high school football and impact the lives of young people with a positive message. 

However, after a brief stint in the military, he answered the call to ministry and transferred to Columbia Bible College & Seminary in Columbia, South Carolina, where he graduated cum laude with a B.A. in Biblical Studies in 1996. Rev. Fox earned his master's degree from Regent University in the area of Church History & Doctrine, in May of 2000. He then added a Ph. D. in Church History in 2009. Dr. Fox has a passion for advancing the kingdom of God and helping people reach their full potential. He also enjoys spending time with his wife April and their two children, Gabriella and Isaiah.
