Billingsley (b. January 7, 1970) is a Christian singer, worship leader, songwriter, speaker and author. Born and raised in Clovis, Charles is currently the worship leader at Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Virginia, which is led by Pastor Jonathan Falwell, son of the late Jerry Falwell.

Billingsley began his solo career the day after he graduated from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama in 1992. After two years, he joined the Christian Contemporary Music group NewSong. In 1994, they released People Get Ready featuring “Arise My Love.” That album had four Number 1 hits. After two years with NewSong, Charles left to pursue a solo career, averaging 200 concerts a year.

The year 2002 brought change as Charles became the worship pastor at Thomas Road Baptist Church, as well as the artist-in-residence at Liberty University. The year 2005 brought even more change as Charles moved to San Diego, California to work with Dr. David Jeremiah at the Shadow Mountain Community Church, home of Turning Point Ministries.

Hear Billingsley on his nationally syndicated radio spot, as well as the app, which are both entitled “Words on Worship” which focuses on encouraging the listener to live a life of worship before God.

Charles has been married to his wife Shae for twenty years.  They have two teenage sons, Caleb and Cooper.
