Dave Carroll serves in the areas of worship leadership and student ministry discipleship with the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention. His experience includes effective local church leadership in the areas of family ministry, student ministry, small groups, Sunday school, college ministry, worship leadership, portable church, executive ministry teams, church planting and senior pastor leadership. He has experience in church sizes of 0-1300 in average attendance and 0-100+ in local church age of existence.
Dave came to saving faith in Jesus and was baptized in his elementary school years. He responded to God’s call to vocational ministry as a freshman at Florida State University. He attended Palm Beach Atlantic University and received a Master of Divinity degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
Dave’s heart is wired to help churches see their vision, hopes and dreams realized. This is true both for the forward thinking church working on the next innovative idea and the long-time church desiring to take a small step forward toward effectiveness. Convinced most ministries are a few key decisions away from seeing the Lord use them in ways they never thought possible, he looks forward to serving worship and student ministers. Before moving to Texas to join the SBTC, they most recently served in Montana as church planters. The Lord blessed as the church grew to 500+ in six years. During that same span, 600+ people came to saving faith in Jesus and 280+ were baptized.
Dave has been married to Amy for 20 years and they have four boys ranging from elementary to high school.
