Charles Kincaid has always had a deep rooted passion for drums, although he did not cultivate that passion until joining Front Street Baptist Church eight years ago. Charles, who has no formal training in music, has a God-given musical gift of playing by ear. He only has to hear a song once or twice to be able to play the song with a high level of skill. Seminars, worship conferences, and classes have all helped Charles to understand that this spiritual gift is not for self gain, "performance" ability, or even the congregation, but for coming and leading others into God's presence for an Audience of One.  Charles and his wife, Lynn, have two children, Whitney, 17, and Josh, 14. They reside in Statesville, North Carolina.  Charles is our drummer.
