PASTOR GEORGE LAWSON JR.
Pastor George was born and raised in Albany, New York. The Lord graciously confronted George’s hypocrisy and hopes in false religion during his college years, and gave him a passion to see lives transformed by the word of God. After relocating to Maryland, he attended Hope Bible Church, where he began to teach weekly Bible classes, preach in the senior pastor’s absence, lead a small group and serve as the Outreach Coordinator. During this time, he also studied at Washington Bible College, where he received a B.A. in Bible and Theology (2006). After earning his degree, he moved to Southern California to pursue an M. Div. from the Master’s Seminary (2010). While there, he served as vice president for the student body and as a deacon and lay leader at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, CA. Upon graduation from The Master’s Seminary, George joined the staff of The Bible Church of Little Rock, as an associate pastor. He also had the privilege of founding SCATTER (a local neighborhood outreach). In 2012, George moved back to Maryland to establish Baltimore Bible Church which officially launched in July 2013. George’s primary ministries include expository preaching, the supervision and development of Baltimore Bible Church, the training of leaders and the shepherding of the members at BBC.

Director of Ministry
Chuck was born on a military base as his father was in Air Force – he spent his first years in upstate, NY. His mother brought he and his siblings back to Baltimore when she and his father separated and divorced. They lived in the Cherry Hill Projects before finding a home in West Baltimore. In the late 60’s, crime and drugs were rampant but “fear of Mom” kept Chuck away from many bad influences. As he grew up in a single-parent home…men in his life were not examples of godliness. Chuck witnessed some of them abuse his mother…one even tried to kill her. He experienced loneliness, insecurity, pain and immorality. Church was interesting, when attended, but no one approached him with the Gospel.
Chuck was about to leave for college in another state when his Aunt Annette stopped by his home to give him the Gospel…the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:1-3). He trusted in Christ as his Savior and Lord. At college, as a new Christian, he wanted and needed Christian fellowship but couldn’t find it and began to look for love in all the wrong places. Through a series of discouraging events, God brought His “babe in Christ” back to Baltimore. God used challenges in Chuck’s life to grow and call him to the church planting ministry with a passion to see the Word of God taught expositionally, and the biblical model of the family restored. The Lord called Chuck to plant and pastor a church in 1994 and in 2022 he began to serve as Director of Ministry at Baltimore Bible Church.
