Pastors & Staff

Dave Carroll

Lead Pastor

Dave and Amy Carroll came to the Upstate from South Florida in the winter of 2022. The Carrolls have been married 24 years and are the proud owners of four boys, two in college and two in middle school. The entire family loves serving Jesus through the local church.  In vocational ministry since their college days, they have invested in helping people far from God come to know Jesus in Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Ohio, Montana and now South Carolina.

Dave brings passion, a heart to develop others and a focus on being effective. He has a Master of Divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary with experience coaching, writing resources, and developing leaders.  Amy loves connecting with and helping people grow. She learned to love ministry as a missionary kid in Africa in her elementary years.

The Carrolls are rabid Miami Hurricane fans, love music, fishing and sports in general. Dave is a fan all sports teams in Miami, where he grew up fishing in the Everglades, snorkeling on reefs and water skiing in Biscayne Bay.

Pastor Dave and Amy see the amazing potential in the people of Impact to make an uncommon spiritual difference in the Upstate area. You are invited to join us on the journey of seeing God move in a powerful way.

Gage Young
