Pastor Carolyn Smith is an ordained minister of the word of God with a special place in her heart for woman and singles. She ministers to the very heart of God’s people and moves in the gifts of healing, words of knowledge, words of wisdom, and prophecy. Pastor Carolyn, along with her late husband Pastor William Smith, has pastured five churches all over the world in Korea, Arkansas, Virginia, and two in Anchorage, AK where they preached the word together until William went home to be with the Lord in 1995. Pastor Carolyn is proud to have a family who love and serve the Lord. They include: her oldest daughter and son-in-law, Antoinette and Theo, and her youngest daughter and son-in-law Mitzi and Kenny. She also has three grandchildren, Nalini, Ravi, and Jaden and many more spiritual grandchildren. In 1995 Pastor Carolyn was given a new assignment in Mesa, AZ at Living Word Bible Church. Once there, she continued to walk in her destiny and expand her calling through volunteering, working on staff, and becoming an ordained Pastor and leader over Guest Speakers, the Women of Destiny PM Women’s Bible Study, Singles of Purpose ministry and many other ministries. After 25 years of service and ministering at Living Word Bible Church, God birthed Destiny on Purpose Ministries to minister to nations, operate in healing, grow the Kingdom of God, and minister to those who have experienced personal tragedies.
Through her personal journey, God has shown Pastor Carolyn the key to overcoming, and encouraging others to live a life of victory. She has experienced physical and mental abuse, and has overcome grief including the loss of her husband, 3 children, both parents, and two of her siblings. During these times in her life she’s learned how much God’s love heals, restores and provides every emotional, physical, and natural need. By experiencing healing in these areas, God uses her greatly to minister in healing, deliverance and comfort to others.
Pastor Carolyn has been involved in many women’s conferences as a guest speaker and host; teaching on healing, faith, restoration, women’s issues, and anger. She has also directed several singles conferences with several distinguished guest speakers including Dr. Myles Munroe, Pastor Casey & Wendy Treat, Pastor Fred Price Jr., and Dr. Phil Goudeaux. Her influence on singles ministry has inspired Dr. Goudeaux to host his own yearly singles conference, at his home church in Sacramento, CA where several singles attend and are set free from bondage.
Pastor Carolyn is ready and excited to begin healing, preaching and teaching the world to walk in their Destiny on Purpose.
