Charles Byrd, Jr, also affectionately known as “Bro. CJ” to the Living Hope family, serves on the ministry team at Living Hope along with his wife Heather. As a young man, God began to deal with CJ’s heart about the call of God and he began his journey in ministry. Shortly after he married his wife, Heather, he received a degree in Process Track and Instrumentation from Bishop State Community College. He owns and operates McNeill Timber Company. Inc. and H&C Transport, LLC., operating a logistics for the timber industry.
Heather received her Masters degree in School Counselling from the University of West Alabama and is a high school counsellor at Citronelle High School. She is currently enrolled in post-master’s education as an Education Specialist at the University of West Alabama.
Bro. & Sis. Byrd have been involved in ministry for more than 20 years, serving as evangelists and pastoring two churches. In 2018, after much prayer, they felt released from their pastorate and joined the ministry team at Living Hope.
Since that time they have received licensure with the United Pentecostal Church and are heavily involved in all aspects of ministry at the church. They reside in Fairford, Alabama and they are the proud parents of Trey Byrd, 10.
