Upcoming events

      “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths”. Proverbs 3:5-6.  This is her favorite Scripture and daily meditation as she travels this journey which started with her birth in Waycross, Ga.  This journey turned into a Christian journey when at the age of twelve she received Jesus as her personal Savior and was baptized at the Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Fitzgerald, Ga. Charlene later moved to New York City and united with the Convent Avenue Baptist Church in New York City in February 1984.  She has served as Vice President of the Sanctuary Choir, Assistant Secretary of Sunday School Class A-5, Secretary of the Deaconess Ministry, Chairperson of the Trustee Ministry, Teacher in the Foundations for Christian Living class, member of the Deacons Ministry, monthly Preacher at the Greater Harlem Nursing Home, and Student Minister at the Greater Universal Baptist Church under the Pastorate of Rev. Dr. Daniel Dupree. She is currently serving as the part-time Minister of Christian Education at the Convent Church under the leadership of the Reverend Dr. Jesse T. Williams, Jr.

            In October 1997, while working in the commercial power industry, she was called to preach the Gospel, when she was told by the Holy Spirit to go down to Nineveh and preach the Gospel.  She recognized the call to ministry required additional academic preparation.  In May 2000, she received a Certificate in Christian Ministry from New York Theological Seminary.  In May 2004, she graduated from New York Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity Degree.  In May 2013, she received her Doctor of Ministry degree from New York Theological Seminary.  She previously received her Bachelors of Science degree in Radiological Science and a Masters Business Administration from Manhattan College in Riverdale, NY. 

            On October 28, 2001, Doctor Faison was licensed to preach the Gospel by the Convent Church.  On April 4, 2008 she was ordained to the Gospel Ministry by the Convent Avenue Baptist Church in collaboration with UMBA and the Empire State Baptist Convention of the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc.

            Doctor Faison is presently serving as the part-time Minister of Christian Education, as well as the Chairperson of the Christian Education Ministry and the Baby Dedication Minister under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Jesse T. Williams, Jr., the Senior Pastor of Convent.

She is married to Minister John Faison, Jr., and they have three adult children.
