A businessman before God called him to preach, W. Carey Hedgpeth has no trouble getting to the bottom line: “Are you a Christian?. Around this basic question Carey has built a successful evangelistic revival ministry.
A daily practitioner of personal evangelism, Carey has served as pastor of two Southern Baptist churches in South Carolina, as well as spearheaded revival movements at churches all over the country with his message “God’s Call to Revival.” But his greatest passion has been delivering the Good News to the previously unreached through Bible studies designed for people who do not attend church.
Carey’s approach to evangelism is straightforward and honest, backed by his own faith that God is working through his ministry. Carey is not harsh or pushy, but confident that God’s Holy Spirit will soon penetrate the hearts of his listeners, and that they will come to know Christ better than ever before. Countless people are discovering a vital relationship with Christ through Carey’s Bible studies and preaching.
Carey attended Wake Forest University before graduating from Campbell University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration. He received his Master of Divinity degree from Southeastern Baptist Seminary. He and his wife, Betty, live in Greenville, South Carolina and have two grown children.
