Who is Charles Pace?
Charles Pace is best known as the current leader of The Branch, The Lord Our Righteousness. He’s in the news because the highly anticipated “Waco: American Siege” Netflix documentary series will explore his rise.
He was born and raised in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada. According to the Toronto Star, he was trained in nutrition, colon therapy and reflexology. His foot was reportedly amputated by a tractor before April 2013. He is also reportedly a herbalist and gardener.
He is married and his wife’s name is Alex Pace. He is also the father of two children, Michael and Angela Pace.
Charles Pace left Collingwood at the age of 18 to embark on a “spiritual quest” in the West. During his stay in Hope, British Columbia, he got in touch with a member of the Seventh-day Adventist community who later introduced him to the Davidians.
In 1973, he first set foot in Waco, Texas, and encountered this group. However, Charles Pace left the complex in the early 1980s. According to Pace, Koresh “distorted” the teachings of the Bible in ways that Pace couldn’t stand.
During the siege, he oversaw a small church in Gadsden, Alabama. His cult is estimated to have 10 or so members. Despite keeping a low profile, the group has drawn attention from the media and law enforcement. Some fear that the new Branch Davidians may be involved in activities such as arms trafficking and child abuse.
