From the little town of Ripley, Mississippi, the Lord has called Carroll Roberson to minister to people all over the world. After being saved by the Lord's grace at the age of twenty-eight and after the Lord brought him through a cancerous operation on his throat one year later, Carroll went into full-time ministry.
After serving two years as a pastor, he felt the Lord leading him into evangelism. Since 1987, Carroll has been preaching revivals, crusades and singing his music for our wonderful Savior to millions of people. Carroll's music has opened numerous doors over the years for him to share Jesus Christ in word and song. His music has brought him national and international success recording nearly 50 gospel albums, with 39 of those available today, and writing over one hundred songs. His music is among the most listened to in Christian music today.
His clear unique style ministers to a wide range of people from young to old and even foreign countries. One of his albums, "His Hand In Mine", has sold over 100,000 copies. Even though he has received numerous awards and dozens of hit songs, his first love is preaching God's word. Carroll keeps the Holy Scriptures at the forefront of his ministry. He studies daily from a Hebraic perspective and has helped countless people come to a richer understanding of God's word. He feels his calling is to share the Bible with as many people as possible in this life.
Carroll and his wife Donna have guided over thirty trips to Israel, uncovering treasures from the life of Christ that have changed many people's lives. His love for the Lord and his years of study have qualified Carroll to be a servant and spokesman of God's mercy and grace. Carroll's life is evidence that God uses simple people from ordinary backgrounds for His extraordinary work. Carroll has two boys, Shane and Brandon. He and Donna attend Shady Grove Baptist Church in Ripley Mississippi when they are not traveling on the road.
