Carole Wolaver The Pottery Lady

As a Master Potter, Carole Wolaver's messages are dramatically presented from the potter's wheel.  Her unique style of story telling, mixed with her skill at the potter's wheel bring scripture to life in a very visual way.   By using a unique Raku style and Hebrew designs, her pottery looks as if it were dug up from an ancient Israeli Tel.  Her teachings are drawn from her own time in God's Word and her experience of being clay in the gentle hands of the Father, The Master Potter, experiencing the molding on the wheel, the fire of the kiln, and the joy of being His. 

Carole's presentations include:

THE MASTER'S PIECES  - The entire story of the Potter and the Clay, told from the potter's perspective from beginning to end, from pit to praise, of how God molds and shapes our lives.

POURED OUT FOR HIM - With a little different twist, this presentation is from the vessel's perspective how we see ourselves. Carole takes a look at four "ordinary vessels" and how they become extraordinary when touched and used by Jesus.

THE MAKING OF A VESSEL OF HONOR -  A dramatic adaptation of the book of Job told from the potter's house.

HANDS TO WORSHIP, HEARTS TO SERVE, FEET OF CLAY - The story of Mary, Martha and Lazarus, as seen from Martha's perspective and her spiritual journey with Jesus.

THE ROAD TO EMMAUS - Carole’s newest presentation where the audience is transported back in time; not only on that seven mile walk to Emmaus but a journey through the Old Testament prophecies that pointed to the Messiah to come.

Carole has spoken at thousands of churches nationwide and internationally and also made appearances on the Carol Lawrence Show and Lifestyles of the Rich in Christ Jesus.

Event Reviews

“Carole was an excellent speaker and story teller. We all loved her! Her knowledge of the Word and her presentation at the Potter’s wheel was wonderful. She was one of the best speakers we have ever had. I will definitely recommend her to other churches just as she was recommended to us.”

— Melanie White, Camarillo Community Church

“The ladies absolutely loved her presentation... there were a few ladies who came for the first time, and some don't attend a church. They raved over her talk and her skills as a potter... and how she wove God into the presentation. We would love to have her again! She was a delight!”

— Shirley Chiarello, Mountain Christian Fellowship

“Carole's presentation was just outstanding. We had the opportunity to view a video that she sent us last fall, and we were so inspired and encouraged by it, that were eager, to say the least, to book her right away!!  We had no doubts that having her with us would be wonderful. It far exceeded even our great expectations. We are STILL receiving such wonderful feedback from her visit. So much so, that we would really like to schedule her again ... and soon!”

— Roberta Simmons, Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church
