Our Pastor

How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 
Romans 10:14

The Reverend Charles R. Tyner, Sr. was born in Northampton County, Murfreesboro, NC.  His membership affiliation is with the Nebo Missionary Baptist Church in Murfreesboro, NC.  Rev. Tyner was licensed to preach in October 1968 and ordained in November 1969. He pastored at Mt. Moriah Baptist Church in Winton, NC for nine years prior to becoming Pastor of White Oak Missionary Baptist Church.

Reverend Tyner is married to the former Miss Betty Ricks of Severn, NC. They are the parents of two sons - Charles Jr. and Christopher; a daughter-in-law (Candace) and three grandchildren. 

Reverend Tyner received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Religion and Philosophy, and History in 1972 from Shaw University, Raleigh; his Master of Science Degree in Administration (in the field of Education) in 1979 from North Carolina Central University, Durham, NC.

Pastor Tyner's vision led him to embark upon a new endeavor. He is the founder of White Oak Foundation, Inc. - a non-profit organization, founded in 1998. This organization is commited to its motto - "Caring for the total person." 

Pastor Tyner's commitment and dedication to helping others led him to travel to Mississippi to see what he could do to help those devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Through his efforts and leadership, the White Oak Foundation and the White Oak Baptist Church family have helped many to make the transition towards recovery as smooth as possible.

Reverend Tyner refers to Matthew 25:34-40 to explain the "why" of his actions "Then they shall say unto Him, Lord, when saw we thee hungered, and fed thee? Or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and visited you? And shall the King say, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
