Rev. Dr. Charles W. Webb

Dr. Webb is an ordained minister in the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod and also a retired emergency room physician. In 2008, after serving as an emergency room physician and family practitioner for 35 years, he retired from Munson Urgent Care to return to active ministry, as well as, medical missionary endeavors.

Trinity Lutheran Church, in Traverse City, Michigan, called him as Missionary-at-Large and currently he is installed there as assistant pastor and medical missionary. He has been to Nairobi twice and Guatemala five times on medical mission trips.

Prior to entering medicine, he served churches in Rensselaer and in Goodland, Indiana and was also assistant pastor at Grace Lutheran Church, English District, while serving as a first year surgery resident at Butterworth Hospital, Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Dr. Webb is also an educator and author. He has held an appointment as Clinical Instructor, Department of Family Practice, College of Human Medicine, Michigan State University and set up a continuing medical education program through Michigan State for staff physicians and oversaw an extern program while practicing at the Memorial Hospital in Owosso, MI. Dr. Webb also held a clinical appointment through Michigan State College of Human Medicine while at Munson Medical Center, Traverse City, MI, where he taught in the Family Practice residency at Munson.

The author of numerous sermons and articles, both medical and non-medical, he has also written a medical mission manual to prepare participants for working as medical missionaries abroad. He became interested in the anatomy and physiology of crucifixion as depicted in the Gospels and has developed a PowerPoint lecture entitled, “The Physical Death of Christ”. The thrust of the lecture is to impart a sense of the effects of crucifixion medically and why it was such a cruel form of torture-death.
