Pastor Karol Mosebay was raised in Gulfport, Mississippi along with her three 3 siblings. In this coastal town, she attended school, community events, church and enjoyed her family and friends. The natural landscape along the Gulf Coast inspired her to seek God and know more Jesus Christ. Unsure of her career pathway, she enrolled in a local community college and earned an associate degree.
Continuing her academic career, she earned a BA degree in Chemistry and a Master of Science in Health Administration from California State University. During this time, she married and gave birth to a bouncing baby boy and everything in her life changed as she became a devoted mother. She began her teaching career in Southern California as a public-school Chemistry teacher. She simultaneously became a Sabbath School teacher in her local church.
She was introduced to the Seventh Day Adventist church through a literature distribution campaign. During the literature distribution, she was given a copy of the Great Controversy and her life was changed forever. While already a student of the Bible, the Great Controversy broadened and enhanced her understanding of the Bible.
The following sabbath, after receiving the Great Controversy she found and attended the closest SDA church.
She was baptized and has been an active member since that time. Years later, after serving in her local church God called her into ministry. She enrolled and attended seminary at Andrews University in Berrien Springs Michigan in 2016 and earned her Master of Divinity. In 2018, she began her pastoral career with the Oklahoma Conference as an Associate Pastor and Interim Senior Pastor serving there until August 2022.
During her ministry in Oklahoma, she developed a podcast for women’s ministry, started a children’s church, initiated community outreach activities, developed a prayer team, taught sabbath school, gave bible studies resulting in baptisms and was elected as the Oklahoma Conference Women’s Ministry Director. Her desire is to please God in every aspect of her life through loving God and loving His people.
She loves Jesus Christ, the Word of God and is thankful to be a Seventh Day Adventist.
She is humbled and excited for the privilege and honor to serve God, the Capital Memorial Church family and the community. She is happily married to Marquel Mosebay and has one son.
