Chuck Knows Church is two online video series that help interpret complex subjects and issues in a fun, yet informative, way. Each series features “Chuck” who helps us learn more about our church while inviting us to have deeper conversation with our pastor or
Who funds the videos? All funding for Chuck Knows Church videos is provided by Discipleship Ministries, an international agency of The United Methodist Church. If you are a United Methodist, your generous support of The World Service Fund helps support Chuck Knows Church.
Who is Chuck, really? Chuck is Chuck! What can we tell ‘ya? He’s also a very knowledgeable guy. We have always felt that Chuck's identity was part of the fun. If we tell you Chuck is a clergy person then some may want to know which seminary he attended, which church he serves, if he’s left handed or right handed. If he’s a layperson, some will want to know if he’s trained to give such churchy advice, and where he attends church. But, we realize some people are not satisfied with that answer. We looked for a long time to find the right person to deliver the message of Chuck. After a series of auditions in three states we found that person in Josh Childs, a Christian leader here in Nashville who loves God and loves the church.
On set we call Josh "Chuck." He's literally the smartest guy in the room and adds to the scripts along with the rest of the producers and writers. Josh is part of our family now. He's our personal friend.
Who produces Chuck Knows Church? Discipleship Ministries of The United Methodist Church produces Chuck Knows Church. A guy named Rev. Steve Horswill-Johnston, Executive Director of Communications at Discipleship Ministries, is the creator and senior producer of the show. We have a team of consultants headed by Rev. Taylor Burton-Edwards, Rev. Jeffrey Campbell, and Rev. Craig Kennet Miller, are theological consultants for the two shows.
Why does Chuck end each episode with “Ask your pastor if you want to learn more. Tell them Chuck sent you?”Volumes have been written about many of the subjects Chuck addresses. Your pastor will know much more. We are trying to create a strong bond between clergy and laity.
