J. D. Charlot was born to the parentage of the late, Mark & Jeri Charlot in Houston, TX. A child prodigy, at the age of 2 Charlot began preaching, laying hands/baptizing on the family dogs. At the age of 5, Charlot preached his first church sermon publicly and began to hold services in his back yard in the after school in the summer months. The neighbors would sit in the back yard and listen to the fiery and convicting messages. From then on, he became an evangelist of great renown beginning in his early days as a “boy preacher”; featured on Gospel 1360 with the late “Skipper Lee” Frazier who gave him his first job as a Funeral Attendant in his funeral home. Before the age of 15 he had crossed state lines preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

He was baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and joined The Original Glorious Church of Houston, TX under the leadership of the late, Mother Naomi Preston and went on to serve Praise Cathedral Original Glorious Church under the leadership of Pastor Davis.
