Carole King

Deaconess

Deaconess Carole’s father was a retired Lutheran principal, but her love of music comes from her mother who was a music teacher and organist.

This led Deaconess Carole to enroll in the Bachelor of Music Education program at Concordia College, River Forest. She soon switched to the Deaconess program with a major in theology, a minor in church music, and a concentration in Greek, graduating in 1986.

Her deaconess internship was at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Esko, MN. Later, serving with Lutheran Bible Translators, she studied French in Brussels, Belgium and Neuchâtel, Switzerland and worked in francophone Cameroon, Africa, among the Gbaya-Mbodomo people.

Upon her return to the States in 1995, she taught in a small Christian school in Valparaiso, IN, before becoming an instructor and curriculum designer at a correspondence high school.

From 2017 to 2020, Deaconess Carole served in the Chaplaincy Department of Concordia Lutheran Ministries in greater Pittsburgh where she visited with residents and led Bible studies and hymn sings at many of Concordia’s senior facilities.

Deaconess Carole was installed at St. Luke on March 8, 2020.

A lover of the outdoors, Deaconess Carole has worked at four national parks and at a Lutheran camp. She also has adopted and fostered several basenji dogs.
