Mr. Charles Lutz
I am a native Hoosier from Indiana where I grew up in a Christian home, church, public schools, and many friends. I became a born again Christian in 1979, during my 10th grade (sophomore) year of high school. I began playing guitar at church youth group. After graduation from high school I attended Purdue University and earned a B.S. in Civil Engineering. I became a licensed professional engineer and worked for two firms doing environmental design and remediation. My brief career of 7 years took me from Indiana to Newark, NJ; San Francisco, CA; and then back to Indiana. Being called to a new career in Christian ministry, I attended Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago, IL and earned an M.A. in Religion. For the past 20 years I have ministered in camps, schools, and churches where God has allowed me to exercise my spiritual gifts in teaching, worship, music, outdoor activities, etc. My teaching certification is through the Georgia Association of Christian Schools in Math, Science and Bible. I've served in IL, LA, NC, GA, and now MT! It's been a wonderful journey, blessing, with fruit-bearing and personal growth. I look forward to serving at MVCA this year!
