Our Pastor


Pastor J.E. Charles Founded the Upper Room Fire Prayer Ministries, a non-denominational, spirit-led multi-cultural Christian organization in Pleasanton California, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.

He is a man of prayer and passionate to pray for many with the mandate to heal the sick, bind the brokenhearted and liberate all those oppressed. His attitude toward demonic forces has been described as cut-throat, a warrior to the core. He believes his call as a prophet is to evangelize, teach and preach God’s word, to wounded army of believer’s violent warfare- his motto “the violent taketh it by force”!

Pastor J.E. Charles who grew up in a culture where open warfare with bold, generational demons and stubborn strongholds was a commonplace, feels that violent prayer and open confrontation against the powers of darkness must be taught, learned and exercised by Christians for success and breakthroughs on various fronts in their personal lives, ministries and families.

Pastor J.E. Charles has held several leadership positions. He served as an intercessor with the Intercessory Prayer and Freedom Ministries at the Well Christian Community Church. He also served as a minister with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) and Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries in California. He was fondly called by others close to him as “Mr. Prayer”

He is here to offer prophetic wisdom, and deliverance insight and revelation for your personal life, ministry, and business according to what God is already doing in you aligning you with the Kingdom which is within you! The vision that God placed on the heart of Pastor J.E. Charles remains firmly rooted today as God continues to grow the ministry.

By the power of God’s vision in the heart of Pastor J.E. Charles, the Upper Room Fire Prayer Ministry is metamophosizing into a place from which the Deliverance and Healing teams of Ministers are being sent to bring deliverance to those held captive. It has been through the hearing of God’s voice and by the desire to be obedient to His calling that Pastor J.E. Charles now leads.

Pastor J.E. Charles is a renowned author, conference speaker, a coach, and management consultant.
