Meet Bishop Hanchey
Bishop Charles Hanchey founded Christ's Church in January of 2000, making him the overseer of the vision God called him to build. He was miraculously healed of cancer at age nine and was gloriously saved while running night clubs in Houston, Texas, at the age of 28. He closed his clubs and moved home to Louisianna, financially broke, but rich in his love and passion for God. Totally sold out to Jesus Chris, he became a servant and student to his Pastor and was soon evangelizing in several states. His ministry has included two years of missionary work in the Phillipines and the building of nine churches. He had been in full time-ministry for 30 years when he founded Christ's Church. Bishop Hanchey's heart has always been for the lost and those whom other people would not want. Discarding religious traditions of segregated church and showcase Christianity, Bishop Hanchey has reached for the people whom no one wanted, and God has been transforming them into the people whom everyone would want! With a heart to pour into young developing ministry, Bishop Hanchey has been leading the church with fresh vision, excitement, passion, and creative ideas to win Laurel and its surrounding areas for Christ. His heart to see lives transformed by the power of God and to see people experience new life in Christ is the bedrock of the practical Christianity he preaches.
A man of great integrity, Bishop Hanchey has been leading in full-time ministry for over 40 years, now. In February of 1996, Bishop Hanchey and his wife, First Lady Doris, were married. Their strong marriage and Ms. Doris' Godly character are inspirations to the people they love and lead.
