Charlie Konoske and his wife, Brenda, have been members of Church of the Open Door for over 10 years. Together they have served in several capacities, including college ministry leaders and HUB ministry. Charlie recalls when he first came to COD and experienced this community of grace for the first time, “Itʼs what was missing from my life and what every believer should experience...a place where one can trust God and others with who they really are.” Charlie is a graduate of Azusa Pacific University and has been employed there in Student Life for over 15 years. When he is not with his family, at COD, or APU, Charlie enjoys coaching high school basketball. In addition to their three children, the Konoskes have the opportunity to love on other little ones along the way as part of their ministry as foster parents.
