About Dr. Charles E. Perry, Jr.
Apostle, Dr. Charles E. Perry, Jr., is a native of Houston, Texas. He answered the call of God to preach the gospel in 1984 under the leadership of his father, Pastor Charles E. Perry, Sr.
During a season of hopelessness and despair, God visited Dr. Perry while he was in the process of carrying out a suicide attempt. In that moment of brokenness, God revealed His plan for Dr. Perry to start Word of Restoration Church. The vision God gave him was to Restore Lives with the Word of God and the assignment was to build Him a city, the City of Restoration. Since then, under Dr. Perry’s leadership, God has blessed Word of Restoration with a campus totaling 47 acres of land where the City of Restoration is to be built. Word of Restoration has currently constructed four facilities amounting to 96,000 square-feet. While surrounding cities and counties are blessed through the Restoring Lives television broadcast which airs daily, there are thousands who call Word of Restoration home. In the words of Dr. Perry, the greatest asset and testimony of Word of Restoration are the people and their lives being restored.
Dr. Perry holds a Bachelor of Ministry Degree and 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.
In March 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 of Apostle, Lady Perry and the Word of Restoration family.
In May 2019, Dr. Perry enrolled in Kingdom Bible Institute to study the School of the Apostles. Upon successful completion of all required studies, on Sunday, September 22, 2019, in a sacred Affirmation Service led by Apostle Dr. Dana Carson of The ROCK Church International, Dr. Perry was publicly affirmed as an Apostle to the Body of Christ. He continues to operate in his Apostolic calling, not only as founding Pastor and Visionary of Word of Restoration, but also through TACC (The Apostle’s Covering and Connection), where he provides training, mentorship, and covering for those Five-Fold Kingdom Leaders who are called and desire a spiritual connection to him.
As a doctrinal teacher of the Word of God, Apostle Perry has the God-given ability to illuminate and interpret the Scriptures for application and relevancy of everyday living. Though Apostle Perry has experienced his share of shame, he stands on the Word found in Isaiah 61:7, and his life epitomizes the statement: “When Your Life is Restored, You Shall Have Double”.
Apostle Perry resides in Sugar Land, Texas, with his wife, Lady Charlette. They have two children, daughter Belinda, & son-in-law Donovan Walker and son, Caleb. They are also the proud grandparents of four granddaughters, Kennedi, Brelyn, Ciara, and Mia.
About Dr. Charles E. Perry, Jr.
In the midst of very trying circumstances, a man called to serve God and His people found himself with a pistol to his temple, ready to take his own life. Thanks be to God, the call on his life far overshadowed the desire to end it!
With a clear and concise vision and the mind and will to obey God, Dr. Charles E. Perry, Jr. was transformed from a life of Desperation to a life 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, a great move of faith led Dr. Perry to seek and acquire 44 Acres of land in Rosharon, Texas that would become the home of “The City”. By 2009 a beautiful new sanctuary had been erected for God’s glory. In 2014, in acknowledgement of the prophetic utterance of the late Dr. Myles Munroe, the mission of Word of Restoration was expanded to the world, and the ministry became Word of Restoration International Church.
Under Dr. Perry’s leadership, Word of Restoration continues to be a thriving and life-restoring church for people from all walks of life. He is an anointed and gifted teacher in the Body of Christ. Dr. Perry is very didactic with a unique anointing to simplify the principles of the Word of God. His incisive command of the scripture allows him to interpret the Word of God within its context and bring it to life so that it is applicable to everyday living and relevant to his audience. As a spirit-filled minister, he is known for his charismatic and energetic style of teaching as he maintains the integrity of scripture. The “Restoring Lives” television broadcast allows the ministry of restoration to reach individuals across the country. Dr. Perry’s life is the epitome of the statement: “When Your Life is Restored, You Shall Have Double”.
