Fred Caudle - Senior Pastor


Pastor Fred Caudle was born in Altus, Oklahoma.  At the age of 10, he accepted Christ as Lord and Savior and was baptized on June 16, 1976.  He moved to Maryland with his parents in August of 1979, and joined membership of First Baptist the same year.  After graduating high school and attending college, he led the youth department and served as Deacon.


Our pastor served in the Army and Army Reserves for a combined term of 10 years.  During his time in the Reserves, he held the position of CEO in a local non-profit company and owned a retail partnership.  At the age of 33, Pastor Caudle knew that God was speaking to him again to preach His word.  He served as Interim and bi-vocational minister from October 2002 to March 2004, when FBC of St Charles ordained and called him as the Senior Pastor.


Our pastor is married to Kay Caudle.  Kay was born in La Plata, Maryland and has remained a resident of Maryland.  Their children are Shelby and Megan.  Together they serve the Lord believing He has equipped them to share His gospel and blessings.
