Brother Michael Carver comes to us having served the past 5 years (June 2012 - June 2017) at Taylor Memorial United Methodist. Michael grew up in Corner, Alabama and is a graduate of Samford University and Memphis Theological Seminary. He was an ER charge nurse for several years at BMC Princeton in Birmingham before accepting God’s call to full-time pastoral ministry in 1994.
He and his family have served several churches in our conference since 1995, including Brilliant/Mt. Pisgah UMC, Trussville 1st UMC (associate), Carbon Hill UMC, Blountsville UMC, and Randall’s Chapel UMC in Scottsboro. Brother Michael has been active in Emmaus and Kairos ministries, as well as in foreign mission trips to Honduras and Cuba. He has a heart for missions, firmly believing we are to reach out beyond our walls to share the love of Christ with the community, both locally and globally.
Michael and his wife, Pam, have three adult children, with the youngest two in college at UAB. Their daughter, Christen, graduated spring semester. Their son, Kenneth, is a junior, and their youngest, John, is a freshman. Pam is an Adult Nurse Practitioner, and assistant professor of nursing at Samford University.
Brother Michael and Pam look forward to serving Dadeville FUMC and the surrounding community. We trust the Lord has great things in store and look forward to the ministry God has ahead for all of us.
