Charley & Ellen Akard -
Pastor Emeritus/Cooking Ministry
Melvin Stapleton - Kitchen Assistant
I was born in Cooper, Texas and grew up in Memphis, Texas.
I attended Junior High and High School in Memphis, Texas. For college, I went to Tulsa University and then Oklahoma Baptist University.
I married Ellen and we had three children: Mitzi, Cindy and Craig. We have seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
I have been at Cameron Baptist Church for 28 years. I have served as Minister of Education, worked with our young adults, youth and children's camps and cooked for the church.
I enjoy working and serving at the church, as well as sports and traveling.
I love Romans 6:23 because I know that God gave me eternal life when I accepted His son, Jesus Christ!
