Dr. Lomax, the only son born to Mr. Charles F. Lomax, Sr. and Ms. Terri Carlock-Lomax, has served as the senior pastor of St. John Missionary Baptist Church located in Alcoa, Tn. since 2012. A native of Knoxville, and a product of Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church, Dr. Lomax was licensed and ordained under the tutelage of the late Reverend Melvin. M. Solomon. 

A huge proponent of education, Dr. Lomax received a bachelor of arts degree in sociology with a minor in political science from the University of Tennessee, a master of divinity degree with a concentration in homiletics from the Morehouse School of Religion at the Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC) in Atlanta and a doctor of ministry degree with a focus on leadership and community witness from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta.

Dr.
Lomax is the vice-moderator of administration for the Knoxville District Baptist Missionary and Educational Association, the vice-president of the Knoxville Interdenominational Christian Ministerial Alliance and a commissioner on the Knoxville/Knox County Metropolitan Planning Commission. 

He also is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated, the National Scholars Honor Society, the International Theological Honor Society of Theta Phi, the Knoxville Area Urban League Young Professionals and the NAACP. 

He has been recognized by Who’s Who Among College Students and is the recipient of the Outstanding Young Alumni Award from the United Negro College Fund.

"Among the gifts and talents that Dr. Lomax possesses, he is most passionate about preaching and teaching the gospel in new and innovative ways," officials said.  "His desire is to impact and transform lives, empower and equip leaders and to uplift the surrounding community in a positive and substantive manner. Recognizing that with God all things are possible, Dr. Lomax is fully reliant upon the Lord to fulfill the calling upon his life and to represent Christ wherever he goes."
