  2. Michelle and Dave, We can’t begin to express our loss for your family. From reading his obituary you can tell he was a worldly and Godly man. Besides his education he had a greater role as husband and father. Also his love for our Lord Jesus Christ looks like a never ending love. Right now Cheryl is in Belize on a mission trip but I know she offers all her love and prays for you. Also know that I’ll be thinking of you and your family and offering up my thoughts and
    prayers. Surrounded you with God’s love.

  3. Cousin Brenda called this morning with the news of Charles’ passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Grandpa Reid, my parents, and I have the utmost respect for Charles and the life of service that he lived so well. I so admire Beth and Mark for the loving support they provided during the past three or four years.

    Should any of you find yourself in my area (St. George, Ut), my door is always open.

    God Bless,

  7. Beth and family,
    I was very shocked and saddened to learn of the death of my good friend and colleague, Charles. We started teaching at Moravian together, our children grew up together, and we traveled together–both geographically and spiritually. The world and the church have lost a great and wise pastor and teacher. You as a family have lost a wonderful husband and father. I will remain in prayer for you in this time of loss and I will seek to reach you in person if possible.

  8. To Beth and the family – we pray that the Lord will grant you strength and understanding in these difficult days. We remember with thanks and gratitude the 26 years that Charles taught at the Seminary. He was a valued colleague and a careful and thoughtful teacher. He helped to shape the lives and faith of generations of students and for this they are thankful.

  9. I thank God for the privilege of learning from Charlie – a professor who taught so much more than theology, Greek and exegesis. He taught us how to live with integrity, stand up to injustice, preach prophetically, and bear witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ in ways that could change the world. Thank you for sharing him with so many students at Moravian Theological Seminary – he shaped my life – and many others – and the ripples of his influence continue to change the world today. Peace and resurrection hope at this time of grief.

  10. To all of the Hargis family I extend my heartfelt condolences. I was a student at Moravian Theological Seminary and count it a privilege to have studied with Dr. Hargis as one of my teachers and mentors. He had a remarkably brilliant mind, and a kind and compassionate soul. I called him a walking talking bibliography because he could not only quote all of the great theologians in class but easily give chapter and page numbers as well. May the peace of the Lord be with all of you.

  11. What to say? The correct words escape me, but Charlie always had the correct words to say. He was a beloved professor/advisor of mine. I was blessed to have experienced his teaching and even more blessed to have gained valuable insight from his advice. I am deeply saddened to have learned of his passing, but Charlie has certainly fought the good fight. Thank you for sharing your wonderful husband and father with us. You are all in my heart and prayers as you transition through this difficult process of life.

  18. I remember Charles in high school – handsome, talented, smart, and so very nice to his friend Thomas’ little sister! Charles’ mother Velvia and my mother were very close friends, so I knew Charles and his family as I was growing up. I still have many beautiful letters from his mother to me, and would like his family to have them. Let me know if you’d like me to send them. I’m so very sorry for your loss.
