On February 2nd, 2005 at the young age of 16, Carl was baptized in Jesus Name and filled with the Holy Ghost at Highway Word of Faith under the leadership of Bishop Carl A. Turner. One year later he received the call of God to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and soon after was accepted to attend Valor Christian College (formerly known as World Harvest Bible College) in Columbus, OH. He graduated in 2010 with an Associates Degree in Pastoral Leadership and further studied in the Advanced Leadership Program. After many years of serving great men and women of God, as well as traveling around the world preaching the Gospel, He received a word from the Lord to start a work in his home town – Newark, Delaware.
In April of 2013 He launched The Voice Ministries on the campus of the University of Delaware which grew rapidly and thrived for nearly two years before he would eventually close the church and move back to Columbus, OH to serve along side his Pastor, Brian M. Williams, at Hope City House of Prayer – where he served for many years and in many capacities, most notably as the Media Director and Executive Pastor.
At the beginning of 2020 Pastor Carl was appointed to be the lead pastor of a brand new church that Hope City would plant on the south side of Columbus. In April of 2021 they launched the church and he was installed as the Pastor of Hope City South where he and his wife serve faithfully.
He is also a teacher, author, clarity coach and creative consultant. Pastor Carl is happily married to Dr. Cassandra Wright, and they are the proud parents of 2 beautiful baby boys, Zion Alexander & Ezra David.
At the age of 32, Pastor Carl carries a Prophetic message of Faith, Hope and Freedom that saves the lost, empowers the people of God and sets at liberty those that are bound! He believes wholeheartedly that he has been given this charge: “To Amplify the Voice of God in the Earth” and he has dedicated his life to this cause: “To KNOW Jesus and to make Him Known!”
