Biography[edit]

Roberson was born July 17, 1955, in Ripley, Mississippi. He read the Bible growing up but did not surrender his life to Christ until 1983. One year later, he was diagnosed with a cancerous growth on his throat. With no promise that he would be able to talk anymore, Roberson underwent thyroid surgery and was able to sing again within three weeks. Shortly after, Roberson devoted himself to full-time ministry. After serving as minister of a Baptist church in his home town for two years, Roberson organized Carroll Roberson Ministries with a board of directors and went into full-time evangelism with his office stationed in his hometown of Ripley. Through revivals, crusades, and concerts, Roberson keeps a two-year schedule around the country.[1]

Ministry[edit]

Music career[edit]

Roberson is well known for his singing and has written over 300 songs and recorded over 40 albums. He has had national success with songs like "Wilt Thou Be Made Whole", which stayed at #1 on the Singing News charts in 1995 for two months, as well as 15 top-ten songs throughout the late 1990s. Roberson has had over 50 songs in the gospel music charts since 1988. Roberson has also received numerous nominations and awards for his singing, including the Top Soloist award from Voice Magazine and Hearts Aflame Soloist of the year in 1998.[2]

Television ministry[edit]

Roberson has a weekly 30-minute television program called This Is Carroll Roberson, which is seen in millions of homes throughout the world on The Church Channel. The television program features straightforward Bible preaching and gospel music accompanied by his wife Donna and is filmed in various outdoor venues in the United States.[3]

Holy Land tours[edit]

Roberson has been hosting tours to Israel since 1993. He has also filmed several teaching DVDs in Israel. Visiting the homeland of Jesus has touched Roberson very deeply, and he regularly researches the scriptures from the Hebraic perspective. Much of his time is devoted to Jewish studies on Jesus as the Messiah. His trips to Israel have motivated him to focus on the life and ministry of Jesus the Messiah in the gospel accounts. Carroll believes the missing link in most religious circles is studying the scriptures from their original intent. His work entitled, Matthew, the Hebrew Gospel, is considered by many to be one of the best commentaries on the book of Matthew. [4]
