began their church planting journey when they were in their teens, planting a church in Southwest Missouri. (The rural church is still alive.) Following the first church plant, Charles
pastored churches in Missouri and Texas.
After graduation from seminary the Brock's and their three sons moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota to help plant a new church.
After four years, they were commissioned by the Lord and the Foreign Mission Board, SBC
to work in the Philippines as church planters.
After twenty fruitful years of planting "associations of churches" the Brocks
resigned from the Foreign Mission Board in 1991 to continue USA based missionary work.
In 1991 Charles founded Church Growth International.
Since that date, Charles and Dottie have served as volunteers working with Church Growth International.
