Chuck Spong
Executive Director

In 2008, Chuck accepted the role the Executive Pastor of Arts and Compassion at Winston-Salem First in North Carolina. In 2012, his role shifted from the campus of Winston-Salem First to the development of strategic initiatives focused on city engagement in partnership with other churches, non-profits, marketplace leaders & city officials through Love Out Loud. In 2015, Love Out Loud became an independent 501c3, and Chuck left the staff of WSFirst to serve as the full-time director focused on connecting leaders, volunteers and resources to facilitate alignment of efforts and mobilizing of organizations and people into their areas of interest and giftedness.

Chuck graduated from Evangel University with a bachelor’s in music education and from the Hartt School of Music with a master’s in music theory. He lives in Lewisville, North Carolina, with his wife, Sara, and four children.
