Our Leadership

Pastor Charlie Bolstridge

Pastor Charlie grew up in Skowhegan, Maine. He was an active and social teen. He grew up in the Nazarene Church and he trusted the Lord as his Savior at age 12. Charlie drifted away from his Christian walk. One day, he was in the cow barn and he heard God say “Have you had enough?.”. At that moment, he realized he need to make a clean break from his destructive lifestyle. He moved back home and lived with his family and that’s when he was encouraged to continue his education at the Easter Nazarene College in Boston. It was just the beginning of his life. This is where he met his wife PJ. They got married in 1989 and started a family. In 1996 Charlie and PJ started following the life that God set for them. They moved to New Hampshire in 2000 and his position ended, but him and his wife were in prayer and walking around the neighborhood to talk to people and Charlie realized he was drawn to community outreach. They moved to Hungary and attended Word of Life Bible Institute. In 2009, they returned to the US and Charlie served as a Senior Pastor through the Christian Missionary Alliance Church in NY. 

That’s when he grew in his role as a pastor and in building relationships in the community in many areas. he was ordained in the C&MA denomination, Charlie and PJ were opened to going wherever God was leading them next. In 2019, Charlie was called to serve as a Lead Pastor at Pointway Alliance Church in Baxter.  Since being at Pointway, he serves as a MN Teen Challenge mentor, on the board of directors for Lakes Area Pregnancy Center, Area Pastors Association, and is a volunteer at several local ministries and as the “Camp JIM Lumberjack”. He loves to spend time with family, travels with his wife, coffee with everyone, and fishing! He also loves spending time with his kids and FaceTiming his Grandkids!
