Charles Morris

Speaker Charles Morris joined the historic Haven broadcast ministry in 2000, following in the steps of men like “First Mate” Bob, Paul Evans and Ray Ortlund.  A gifted speaker with a heart to tell all nations of the saving grace of God, his constant theme is that “It’s ALL about Jesus!”

Charles brings a rich background to Christian radio from secular media.  Starting his career as a broadcast news reporter, he then worked as an editor and bureau chief for United Press International. He also served as press secretary for two former U.S. Senators in addition to owning and managing a radio station.  Before joining Haven, he worked for the “Bible Study Hour” ministry with the late Dr. James Boice.

Under Charles’ leadership, the program took a bold approach in March 2002.  Taking advantage of satellite and Internet technology, and Charles’ interest and background in news, Haven Today is produced just hours before it airs daily.  Programs are crafted to target what’s on people’s minds with solutions for the complexities of contemporary life.  The format literally takes today’s headlines and relates them to Scripture, proclaiming Jesus as the ultimate answer.

In addition to the Haven Today half-hour broadcast, Charles is also heard on the 1:00 Haven Now feature, a daily challenge that takes listeners from their everyday world and turns them toward the cross of Christ.

Furthermore, effective January 4, 2021 Charles has also become the voice heard on the 1:00 Anchor Today feature (previously voiced by David Wollen), an audio devotional designed around a complete verse of Scripture each day—to encourage listeners in the spiritual disciplines of Bible reading and daily prayer.

The co-author of Breaking Out of Plastic Prison, Charles has also co-authored with his wife, Janet, Jesus in the Midst of Success and Saving a Life—a very personal account of the death of his teenage son.

Charles and Janet Morris have two adult children in addition to their deceased son, Jeff, five grandchildren, and a fine dog who goes by the name of “Clementine.”
