Charlie Cotherman

Administrative Director

“Rural western Pennsylvania is my home. I grew up here, and I pastor a church here. The PRM has amazing potential to benefit rural pastors and congregations, communities and colleges—that’s why I’m so passionate about our work!”

PRM-Team-Charlie

Charlie describes the three dimensions of his calling as husband/father, pastor, and scholar/teacher. He and his wife Aimee planted a church in Oil City, PA, in 2016, and his longtime association with this region makes him ideally suited to serve as the PRM’s administrative director. Charlie’s publications emphasize the importance of rural communities, including articles for ChristianityToday.com and Evangelicals magazine as well as Sent to Flourish: A Guide to Planting and Multiplying Churches. He also contemplates the intersection of Christian witness and university culture in the forthcoming To Think Christianly: A History of L’Abri, Regent College, and the Christian Study Center Movement and has taught at Fuller Seminary and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.

Charlie’s investment in the PRM blends his pastoral and professorial callings: “By linking rural pastors and their churches with a vibrant Christian college, the PRM is perhaps the only project that is intentionally seeking to ask—what does it really mean for Christian colleges and rural churches and communities to be good neighbors?”
