Rev. Dr. Chuck Roberts
Pastor for Congregational Life
A native of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, Chuck Roberts graduated from Arkansas State University with a degree in History, which he discovered was good for nothing, except a springboard to graduate school. Having been involved in sports most of his life, he contemplated coaching (a High School football injury turned him into an equipment manager, and he holds two conference championship rings), but sensed a call to ministry, and pursued that through Columbia Theological Seminary, from which he earned two Masters degrees (a Doctorate came later from McCormick Seminary in Chicago). Having served churches in Augusta, GA (where a close friend was Assistant Manager of the Augusta National!); Greenville, SC; and Pascagoula, MS (riding out several hurricanes, the first of which hit his third day on the job!), Chuck serves Peachtree for the second time, having been the Minister to Singles from 1989-1995. With a passion for the Bible, for seeing men grow as followers of Jesus, and for the church scattered and effective in the workplace, Chuck can be found covered in sawdust working on projects at home, or on his bike around Buckhead or on the Silver Comet Trail when trying to clear his mind. Married to the former Lib Upchurch of Montgomery, AL, Chuck and Lib have two adult daughters, Anne and Kathryn.
