Called out of the business world in 1998, Chari received a vision of riding a white, motorcycle with eagle wings on the tank up and down hills spreading the Gospel of the Good News of Christ to kids. That vision became a reality and now she ministers to kids of all ages.
Chari first served as a volunteer prison chaplain for troubled teenage boys. It was there that these young men began to call her "Coach." They liked her non-intimidating style of correcting without criticizing. They could relate to having a spiritual coach better than the term pastor or chaplain. It also became her biker road name and is to this day.
After serving as a volunteer prison and motorcycle evangelist, Chari was hired by the Prison Agency as a lead Chaplain and at one time was responsible for the spiritual growth of over 3,500 incarcerated adults of a faith group.
Chari Lea graduated Arkansas Tech University in 1979 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting.

Chari's credentials includes being an ordained pastor/chaplain with the Assemblies of God International Fellowship since August of 2004. She has also completed the Freedom Ministry Training for Ministers from Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas.
Eleven of her periodicals are published at the American Theological Library under "Religious Periodical Literature of the Hispanic and Indigenous Peoples of the America 's", 1850-1985, #2008I-S025.
