Retired minister Charles H. Pollock, 86, died Jan. 17 at his home in Bainbridge. He served mostly in Georgia and Florida during his career as well as a short time with the Home Mission Board in Connecticut.

Pollock was the 11th of 12 children born into a farm family in Delwood in southwest Georgia. He reluctantly quit school in the sixth grade to work the farm and eventually joined the Army Air Corps during World War II. Following his call to the ministry he worked to overcome his early lack of education and eventually graduated from Mercer University, New Orleans Seminary, and earned a doctorate in theology from Luther Rice Seminary.

Pollock served in a number of churches through the years with an emphasis on church growth and evangelism, filling his sermons with messages of Godís grace and love.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy Drinkwater Pollock, last August; daughter, Laura Golden; son, Tim Pollock; and a grandson. He is survived by his son, David Pollock; brother, Nathan Pollock; and two granddaughters.
