Dr. Charles E. Sharp, Executive Director of the Colorado Baptist General Convention, 1984-1993, passed away in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on February 28, 2013. He was 77.
Sharp came to Colorado in 1982 as the director of Church Training and Music, a position similar to one he held in the Northern Plains Baptist Convention. In a 2004 interview, Sharp described his role. “When I got to Colorado,” he said, “it wasn’t long until I realized that my heart was really in the discipleship area. That became the primary responsibility as long as I was in Church Training and Music.” One of his favorite tasks was leading pastor groups through MasterLife, a discipleship class.
