Carey grew up as a Pastor’s kid and knew the gospel very well, but it wasn’t until he was twelve that he accepted the Lord as his personal Savior. He than began to help his father as much as possible at his home church. When Carey turned fifteen, God called him to preach and he started to preach in his home church as well as other local churches. Carey joined our team in the fall of 2019 working on our Marketing and Promotions group. He is excited for what God is doing the hearts and lives of all the people involved with The Edge Christian Camp. “I am here to glorify God and to see souls saved and draw closer to Jesus Christ.”
