the pastors:

Dr. Chuck and Peggy Irwin encourage strong  praise and worship.   We feel our mission is to worship the Lord Jesus in Spirit and truth as well as teach the gospel of Jesus without error or compromise.  

Out of our Intimacy with the Lord Jesus Christ the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit flow.  ​

Dr. Chuck, along with wife Apostle Peggy Irwin, founded FaithWalk in San Antonio, Texas in 2009. Chuck graduated from Columbia College, MO with a BA in business; from Trinity Valley Baptist Seminary, Kennedale, Texas; and a Ph.D. with a concentration in Theology, from the School of Theology at the University of Devonshire, London, UK.  Chuck has served in a multiplicity of ministries for a little over 30 years, including having helped plant four churches previous to FaithWalk Fellowship.

Previous to ministry, Chuck served a little over 20 years in the US Army, much of that as an infantry soldier, and a Drill Sergeant, with a few “ripe plumb” assignments here and there. After Army duties, he was selected as a Regional Vice President for two successive insurance companies, and later by GE Capital, and operated as Third Party Marketing Manager for one of their internal divisions.

He gave his life to Christ at the end of long 39 year bumpy, muddy road! Chuck was introduced to the fullness of the gospel three years later, and never looked back.

Chuck is a researcher! He loves to dig back to the original intent of Scripture in order to teach with accuracy, and completeness.
