Reverend Mickele Carpenter
I am originally from Memphis, Tennessee and I have lived in San Francisco for the past 7 years. I have been a member of Village Baptist Church since 2001. Having to deal with the stigma of being a “PK” - preacher’s kid - and growing up in the Bible Belt, I struggled with the call to ministry for many years. God removed me from my comfort zone and challenged me to face my fears and I ultimately answered the call to ministry in 2001 and was licensed by Pastor Akgnon in January of 2002. In addition to serving as an associate minister, I co-teach the Young Adult Sunday School class.
I have spent most of my professional career as a recruiter within human resources and I am currently a Sr. Recruiter at Gap, Inc. in San Francisco. I have a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and a master’s in Educational Leadership both from the University of Memphis. I am currently pursuing my Master’s of Divinity at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. I am blessed to be married to Orin Carpenter for 10 years and we are the proud parents of Kaleb and, soon to be delivered, Kyndall Clarke Carpenter. We currently reside in Petaluma.
