charles-and-joyCharles Welch was called into a relationship with Jesus Christ on December 17th of 1990. He was called into full-time Christian Ministry on September 28th of 1998, when he accepted the position of Outdoor Education Director for Wolf Mountain Christian Camp and Conference Center in Grass Valley, California. Over the course of 10 years in that position, Mr. Welch developed a unique Christian Education Ministry based upon Intelligent Design Theory and the Revelation of God in Creation. Romans 1: 19 and 20 are the foundational verses of scripture for his curriculum, which is designed to guide children and adults through the experiential realization that God truly does reveal Himself through His Creation as well as through His Word.

Mr. Welch formed High Sierra Outdoor Schools in 2009 and then, with his wife Joy, formed High Sierra Outdoor Institute as a non-profit Christian Ministry in 2012. His outdoor education programs are offered on the grounds of Christian Camps in both Northern and Southern California. Known as “Mr. Charley” to thousands of students and teachers from Christian Schools over the past 15 years, he has presented devotional talks and Intelligent Design Seminars for numerous home school groups, church groups, and Christian Camping and Conference International conventions. Mr. Welch brings a unique blend of current scientific concepts and the truths of scripture to his talks and presentations.
