Charles and Anne Stock visit Larry Kreider in the studio for the first time to share what they experienced during the Jesus Movement of the 1970s as they began to encounter and know God. Listen as the Stocks divulge how God helped to sell their house, the various leadership transitions they’ve gone through, and how Jesus fulfilled their desire for peace and joy.

Charles and Anne Stock have been the senior pastors of Life Center Ministries in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania since 1988. Together, they also serve as the co-founders of the Clear River Apostolic Network. The Stocks have two daughters and several grandchildren.
