About Dr. Charles E. Perry, Jr.
In the midst of hopelessness and despair, a man with the call of God on his life was at the point of ending it all. In a moment’s time, he had a visitation from God that filled his room and overshadowed his decision. From that encounter, he was determined to believe God and live again! That man is none other than Charles E. Perry, Jr.
With a life-restoring Word from God and a clear vision, Pastor Perry walked away from a life of devastation and into one of restoration.
In February 2001, he founded the Word of Restoration Christian Fellowship with 13 people. God gave him the vision of Restoring Lives with the Word of God along with the assignment to build Him (God) a city…“The City of Restoration”. In 2005, Pastor Perry led the church into a 44-acre land purchase in Rosharon, Texas that would become “The City of Restoration”. In 2007 under Pastor Perry’s leadership, construction began for Word of Restoration’s new sanctuary. In April 2009 a grand procession was held with the members leaving from the previous location to celebrate the grand opening of the new worship facility.
In 2014, in acknowledgment of the prophetic utterance of the late Dr. Myles Munroe, the mission of Word of Restoration Christian Fellowship was expanded to an international platform, thereby changing the name to Word of Restoration International Church. In March of 2015, Dr. Perry became a covenant spiritual son of Bishop Steve Houpe, Founder and Senior Pastor of Harvest Church International Outreach in Kansas City, Missouri. Bishop Steve Houpe and Dr. Donna Leah Houpe serve as spiritual parents to Dr. Perry, Lady Charlette Perry and the Word of Restoration family.
Dr. Perry is a gifted teacher to the body of Christ with an apostolic anointing. He has the God-given ability to simplify and interpret The Word so that it is applicable and relevant to everyday living. Through the “Restoring Lives” television broadcast, both locally and nationally, his ministry of restoration reaches individuals from coast to coast. Dr. Perry’s life is the epitome of the statement: “When Your Life is Restored, You Shall Have Double”.
Dr. Perry holds a Bachelor of Ministry Degree, a Master’s Degree in Christian Leadership from Union Bible Theological Seminary and Doctorate of Ministry Degree from Christian Bible Institute and Seminary. He is also a Board Certified Christian Counselor. As a student of The Word, Dr. Perry continues to expand his spiritual knowledge of the Kingdom of God through the mentorship of Dr. Dana Carson, Senior Pastor of The R.O.C.K. Church.
A young native Houstonian, Dr. Perry answered the call of God to preach the gospel in 1984, under the leadership of his father, Charles E. Perry, Sr. As the Founder, Senior Pastor and Visionary of Word of Restoration, Dr. Perry is supported in ministry by his anointed Proverbs 31 wife, Lady Charlette Perry. The Perrys reside in Sugar Land, Texas and have two children, their son, Caleb and their daughter Belinda, who is married to their son-in-law Donovan. They are the proud grandparents of three granddaughters (lovingly referred to as the “grandgirls”): Kennedi, Brelyn & Ciara.
