Charlie Bell


Pastor Bell and his wife Christine have been in ministry for over thirty years
together. They have two grown daughters and three grandchildren.
Charlie and Christine have bachelor’s degrees in from Baptist Bible College
in Springfield, MO (1987). Christine also has a master’s in Education from
Missouri State University and has been a high school Spanish teacher for almost 20
years. Charlie has a master’s in Christian Education and has completed studies
toward his PhD (ABD) from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort
Worth, TX.
The Bells were missionaries to Argentina, SA for 9 years, where they started
a church and helped train men and women for ministry. Charles was a professor of
missions and inter-cultural studies at Baptist Bible College for 4 ½ years before
pastoring the West Division Street Baptist Church in Springfield, MO for 6 ½
years. The Bells returned to Texas in 2014 in order to help churches reach the
Hispanic community and start ministries and churches. In 2017 the Bells worked
with Canyon Creek Baptist Church of Richardson, TX, and later, Warehouse
Church of Plano, TX to lead their Spanish-speaking ministry. In April of 2020
they worked with the Spanish-speaking ministry leaders to launch out and begin a
new church called Iglesia Bautista Pasos de Fe.
“As Big Springs Baptist Church invited Pasos de Fe to share their facilities
the Lord opened up a unique opportunity for me to pastor both Big Springs and
Pasos de Fe. What I have learned is that which seems to be impossible or extra-
ordinary become both manageable and successful through the power of the Holy
Spirit and through the work and generosity of God’s people.”
