Dr. Vern Charette is Assistant Professor of Preaching at Southwestern Seminary. Hailing from Tulsa, OK there was a time in Vern's life when he was a high school dropout, in trouble with the authorities & living an immoral life. Vern's life dramatically changed when he met an African American preacher who led him to the Lord. Soon, it became evident that the Lord had endowed Vern with the gift of preaching. After his licensing & ordination, Vern "hit the trail" as an itinerate evangelist preaching scores of special meetings & witnessing many professions of faith.
In 1997, the Lord opened up the door for him to pursue a formal theological education. With the support of his sweet wife, Jennifer, Vern graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University with honors. Then on to attend Mid-Amerca Baptist Theological Seminary in Memphis, TN where he not only earned his MDiv. In 2006, Vern's came to Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where he earned a ThM & PhD in Preaching. Vern continues a highly demanding preaching schedule that keeps him in touch with the local church and missions. He contributes his popularity to his homiletical approach. Vern weds an unflinching commitment to text-driven preaching with the pathos of an evangelist, which makes him rare.
