Cary was born and raised in Mobile. He has been married to his wife, Heather for 18 years and they have two children ages 13 and 15. Cary received his B.A. in General Studies from the University of Mobile in 1996 and has one semester remaining to complete his degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary with his Master’s in Christian Education Ministries.
Cary began his career in ministry as an intern at his home church, Cottage Hill Baptist. He later moved to Dallas/Fort Worth where he served as an intern and the Associate Youth Pastor at First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas. After serving in youth ministry for eight years, Cary felt the Lord calling him into full time children’s ministry. Cary came to us from First Baptist Church of St. Cloud, Florida where he served for six years as the Associate Pastor of Children and Families. He also has served in two para-church organizations during his ministry career as a Disc Jockey at WBHY Christian Radio in Mobile and as the Operations Manager at Tri-Hawk Media Productions, a Christian production company in Dallas/Fort Worth. While his ministry has been primarily to youth, children and families, he greatly enjoys serving in the pastoral care role, education ministry, missions, and outreach.
Cary says, “Ministry to me is all about equipping the saints by building relationships, and discipling others to carry out God’s purpose in building His kingdom. My heart’s desire is simply to please God and be obedient to His calling on my life.”
