Carl comes to Joy El after 11 years of working with children at the Milton Hershey School where he and wife Nicole were houseparents. Prior to that Carl was also a TSS and a youth pastor. He graduated from Baptist Bible College (now called Summit University) which is where he met Nicole. He calls Huntersville his hometown.
In his leisure hours, Carl enjoys hunting, camping, hiking, field trips, family trips and all things outdoors. He and Nicole now reside in the Greencastle area along with children, Josiah and Faith.
Carl's favorite scripture is Joshua 24:15: "But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord."
