While most Baptist ministers hop around to various churches throughout their career, Carol’s life was planted at Highland Baptist Church as an infant and those roots have stayed strong all these years. It is with joy that she continues to serve in ministry alongside the cloud of witnesses at Highland.
Carol received her Bachelor of Arts in Religion and Spanish from Wake Forest University in 2006, her Master of Divinity from Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 2010, and was ordained by Highland in 2010. After serving as a Pastoral Intern for one year, Carol served as Minister to Youth from 2007-2016 where she focused on youth’s community development, pastoral care, faith formation, rites of passage, missional partnerships, and seminary-student internships.
Outside of Highland, Carol served for three years as Membership Coordinator, President-Elect, and President of the CBF Youth Ministry Network Executive Board. Carol has written summer camp curriculum for Passport Youth Camp and blogs for Baptist Women in Ministry, Youth Ministry Conversations, D365 Devotional, CBF Blog, and CBF on Patheos.
Life outside of work with three sons, work on her Doctor of Ministry degree at Duke Divinity School, also includes squeezing in time to run, cook, listen to podcasts, and connecting with friends. Carol blogs here.
