Chuck Abbott

Chuck has been married to Susan for 40 years. They have four adult sons and seven grandkids (all girls but one). Chuck and Susan first attended FCC in 2006. During the three years we lived in Cincinnati, we stayed in touch with the FCC family and attended every time we visited Nashville, so when we returned in 2013 it felt like we had never left. Susan has a heart for foreign missions and has been to the Dominican Republic and Brazil. I am involved in a number of men’s ministries and just finished a class on Ephesians. Susan and I have either led or been involved in a number of different life groups over the years.
This will be Chuck’s first term as an Elder at FCC, however, he previously served as an Elder at a church in Syracuse New York.

Favorite Bible verses:
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:4-7
