Our Inspirational Speakers

Carrie Osborne

Carrie has been in pastoral ministry since 2013, though her desire to help others overcome their pain and lean into their God-given worth has been a part of her Spirit-given passion all her life (not that she recognized it the whole time 😉). While her background does include Seminary training, Carrie counts her college and post-graduate learning in Education and Professional Counseling as instrumental in her development of a well-rounded understanding of how people relate to / with one another, how people internalize and project thoughts and emotions, and how people incorporate (or not) their faith into their daily rhythms. Carrie has 20+ years of intentional life-on-life relationship building through summer camp staff roles, Residence Life on college campuses, and building community within and around local church congregations in various places around the world. Currently, Carrie is serving as Senior Pastor for Voice of Hope Church of God in Chillicothe, OH; a congregation of Grace Communion International. She also works for Integrated Services for Behavioral Health as a Community Behavioral Health Worker at Adena Local School District in Frankfort, OH. She has been married to Greg for 5 years. They have one fur-baby, Odie, one fur-brother, Buddy, and 2 parents, Tom & Pam, at home.
