How can anyone reach the age of 40 and be unaware of their true calling? God's Call “It happens,” Carol says. “I did a complete reversal in my life after my 40th birthday. In just 1 year after turning 40, I was enrolled in Bible College, and became the director of the women’s ministry at my church. It would be another 5 years before I experienced a clear call to preach and teach the gospel. I received my Diploma and ordination and took on the role of Pastor and Bible Teacher, focusing on prayer, faith, healing, and evangelism." Evangelism Pastors In 2003, her husband A.B. received a call from God to establish New Life Prayer Ministries. New Life Prayer Ministries went into disadvantaged neighborhoods with a truck and a trailer, grilling hot dogs on site, sharing the gospel, music and friendship. Many received prayer for salvation, healing, and deliverance. Church Planting & Pastors In 2004, Carol and A.B., and the New Life Prayer Ministry Team, planted Crossroads Church. They began the church in a Day Care Center, moved to a Body Shop, and finally to a building in West Albany, where they served as co-pastors until 2011.

Carol says, “ Simply put, I am a hope dealer, and faith promoter of God given dreams and destiny.” It is my dream, to help you make your dream come true. I will meet you at whatever ‘Crossroads,’ that you find yourself and help you make the right turn. Don’t stay stuck another day! Choose Life!

Missions Carol & husband A.B. recently transitioned from the Evangelism/Missions Pastors at Victory Tabernacle A/G in Albany, so they could follow their dream to travel. Not wanting to retire from ministry, they became members of RV Maps. RV Maps is the U.S. Mission America Placement Service of the Assemblies of God that coordinates assistance of volunteers at churches, ministry institutions, like Teen Challenge, and camps, all across the country. The RV Ministry in particular is where volunteers travel from project to project serving God and the people they meet with hearts of love, using great work principles. Because of Rv’ers many churches, camps, and Teen Challenge Centers receive skilled labor from all different kinds of occupations and backgrounds. Carol and her husband are again serving as a team as they travel. Their son Donald recently congratulated them on their 47 year anniversary, saying, “ They are a great team.”
A.B. & Carol have two sons and 3 grandsons. The eldest, Donald is following in his father footsteps, as a Bi-Vocational Pastor, and Business Owner. The younger son loves to travel and has been all over the United States.
