In late 2015 Carol Polk answered God’s call to start Pivot Ministry to make a difference locally for His glory. This ministry captures her passion for empowering individuals and capitalizes on a management career that includes co-founding a successful company and that spans multiple industries such as professional services, consumer goods, global sourcing, computer hardware, and financial services. Carol holds an MBA from Wake Forest University and recently completed a term on the Board of Trustees for North Carolina Baptist Hospital.
A committed Christian since age eight, Carol has been an active member of Ardmore Baptist Church since 1983 and has a long list of life experiences that relate to Pivot’s mission. She grew up in one of the 20 poorest counties in the U.S., has taught GED classes, mentored the homeless, worked with a teen dropout, and nurtured many through job and career changes. Upon reviewing Carol’s professional and personal background, a fellow Christian said, “I’ve always known that God prepares us for what He wants us to do, but I’ve never seen it on paper.”
