Charles Bell

Welcome Ministry Coordinator

Charles was born and grew up in Newtownards, Co. Down, Northern Ireland, ten miles south of Belfast and is the youngest of six children, including a twin brother. One year after a visit to an older brother living in St. Catharines, Charles married Margaret in July 1974 and immigrated to Canada three weeks later. After a personal struggle and crisis, Charles accepted the Lord as his own personal Saviour on July 15th, 1981 on his and Margaret’s 7th wedding anniversary. Charles and Margaret have been married for 43 years and have four children and five grandchildren. He recently retired and is trusting the Lord to direct his steps in his ‘Golden Years’

Charles & Margaret attended Harvest Oakville for about five years before becoming part of the core group that helped plant Harvest Niagara. Even though Charles has had his own personal struggles, the Lord has been so faithful in leading him to Harvest Niagara and is continuing to sustain him through the ministry of the Word at Harvest Niagara and through small group ministry.

Charles & Margaret facilitate a Recovery Ministry for anyone struggling with addictions or anyone walking alongside someone struggling in addiction on a weekly basis at the church office on Monday evenings.
