"Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. 

Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood."

~Acts 20:28

Rev. Dr. Charles E. Thompson, Jr.

His faith journey began with salvation and baptism at a young age. Growing up as the son of a Pastor, he served on the Usher’s Ministry, Youth Choir, Male Chorus and Youth Missionaries. Dr. Thompson has always had a passion for ministry and evangelism and has been actively involved in both areas throughout his life.


Always sensing the call of God upon his life, he has served in the Gospel Ministry for nearly thirty years. His ministerial experience includes prior service as an Associate Minister, a Youth Pastor, and as Senior Pastor of Young’s Chapel Baptist Church, Roxboro, North Carolina. He has served as Senior Pastor of Shiloh Institutional Baptist Church, Charlotte, North Carolina since 2010.

Under Dr. Thompson’s leadership, Shiloh Institutional Baptist Church adopted the motto of “Loving God, Loving Others!” His ABC Vision Plan is as follows: A=Always go out of the way to be friendly and hospitable, B=Build for the future by prioritizing and nurturing youth, and C=Coordinate ministry with community residents and partners whenever possible.


Dr. Thompson earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from North Carolina Central University; a Master of Divinity Degree in Preaching and Worship from Shaw University Divinity School; Clinical Pastoral Education at Wake Forest Baptist Health; a Doctor of Ministry Degree in Preaching and Leadership from United Theological Seminary.


Dr. Thompson is happily married to the former Charlena Carlton. He is the proud father of four daughters and one son: Gabrielle Elizabeth, Jamisyn-Leigh Grace, Madison Faith, Aaliyah Monet, and Christian Samuel. He is just a nobody trying to tell everybody about somebody who can change anybody. That somebody is Jesus Christ!
