Charles Billingsley is a nationally-known recording artist, worship leader, teacher, author and pastor. He recently released, "It's Christmas Time Again." His most recent albums include, "Right Here," "20," and "Only Jesus." His hope is always to encourage the listeners to take their focus off the situations around them, and to focus their heart’s attention on worshiping the only one worthy of praise, only Jesus.
Billingsley also has his own nationally syndicated radio series, “Words on Worship,” which is broadcast weekdays on more than 300 stations, as well as online. Through these 60-second spots, Charles conveys the central message of his heart, “to assist other believers in discovering a lifestyle of worship.” He explains, “I think every decision you make, every sin you commit, everything ultimately is a worship issue, as a believer. Everybody worships something or someone, every moment of every day. So, who or what you’re worshiping will determine the choices you make—financially, physically, everything.”
When he's not on the road, Charles and his family - wife Shae and teen sons, Caleb and Cooper - call San Diego home, and it's his days offstage that ultimately inspire him the most. "Being a father is a lot like being a teacher," Charles relates. "There's a lot of pressure and accountability to be the man I'm supposed to be, for my kids to see the same guy at home as they see onstage at church. I want them to witness me reading Scripture; I want them to have conversations with me about the Lord on a regular basis so they know this is not just a job to me, but a lifestyle."
