Jimmy Carroll planted Journey Church in 2005 and currently serves as its Lead Pastor. Jimmy and his wife Beverly are natives of Raleigh, were childhood sweethearts, were married in 1989, and have one son Austin (1991). Jimmy has been in ministry since 1989 first serving as a Student Ministry Pastor, then as an Executive Pastor and Co-Pastor before stepping into his current role.
He is extremely passionate about helping others follow Jesus and making Jesus’ name famous in the city of Raleigh, the nation, and the world. A key initiative in accomplishing this mission is through church planting locally with TCPN (Triangle Church Planting Network), nationally with LCPN (Liberty Church Planting Network), and internationally with TTI (The Timothy Initiative).
