Al Carroll

Ministry Assistant

Al joins the Antioch team after 34 years of service to the United Parcel Service (UPS). He has been a member of Antioch since the 1980's and has been serving on a volunteer basis for many decades until he was hired in February of 2021. His primary role is in member care and office management. We'll provide a new picture later, but it's hard to find a picture of just Al, because he's never alone. He's always with someone, encouraging, comforting, and just being a friend. The current picture shows the return Al is getting for a lifetime of investing in people.
