As Chief Evangelism Officer of Setting the Captives Free Ministries, The Reverend Doctor Carol Lynn Patterson is committed to preaching, teaching and demonstrating a liberating gospel. 

A teacher by nature, Doctor Carol serves in both ecclesial and academic capacities. As Associate Pastor of Faith Formation and Discipleship at First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens in Somerset, New Jersey (where The Reverend Dante R. Quick, Ph. D. is Senior Pastor), she is frequently invited to preach and lead Wordshops for numerous churches, associations and conferences with emphasis on evangelism, social justice and discipleship. 

The author of Deceit, an empowering and liberating novel about resilience after setbacks, Doctor Carol is praying fervently for a best-selling book that becomes a Pulitzer Prize winning play, an Oscar winning movie and an Emmy award-winning television series that reminds people they are never stuck in any circumstance.

She has been recognized by EBONY Magazine as an Outstanding Woman in Marketing & Communications, the Morris County Branch of the NAACP with the Community Leaders Social Justice Award and Business News NJ as one of the Top 10 Women in the State.
