Chuck and Debbie have been married for over 35 years. They have 8 children, 12 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.
Debbie has been a home-maker for the length of their marriage, and has homeschooled the Brooks children for some 27 years. She currently runs a daycare from their home as well as directs New Beginnings, an outreach ministry of GraceWay Legacy.
Chuck has degrees in Electronics Technology from CCBC and Information Systems from the University of Maryland. He has a Masters Degree in Missions from Union University (TN) and is currently pursuing his doctorate degree.
Together Chuck and Debbie started GraceWay Ministries as church planters over two decades ago. Their desire is to see a revival of the family as described in the Bible, God's Word. Chuck and Debbie have a specific passion to reach out to single teen moms and at-risk young men as they both became unwed parents at an early age and experienced the challenges that come with it. They also feel called by the Lord to strengthen marrages and to teach and mentor men and women in their biblical roles and responsibilities.
