ATLANTA - In a rare interview, Dr. Charles Stanley opened up to Channel 2’s Monica Pearson about the most private moments of his life and his ministry that inspires millions of people around the world.
“For more than 40 years, Dr. Stanley has been delivering sermons to the congregation at First Baptist Church in Atlanta,” said Pearson. “Today Dr. Stanley is heard on nearly two thousand television and radio stations and is translated into dozens of languages.”
Dr. Stanley talked to Pearson about his very public divorce and how it threatened his leadership at the church. He also revealed the surprising person who could replace him as pastor and talked openly about his tightly knitted family.
“Dr. Stanley rarely gives interviews,” said Pearson. “I spent several hours with the senior pastor and was able to see a different side of him, including his passion away from the pulpit.”
