From Carolyn’s Desk: Hi, I am Carolyn, Founder and Administrator, PRAYER Coach, Bible Teacher, Author, and Speaker at Carolyn Marlowe Ministries (aka CMM) and GO: GatHERings.us Outreach. We welcome you to our online abode.
A Little About My Family
My husband, Kent, and I were high school sweethearts. We are South Carolina natives where tea is sweet—and accents are sweeter. Our lives are filled with an abundance of friends and fellowship at Hope Church, Spartanburg, SC. We have called Hope Church our home since 1989. And with family—two daughters, two sons-in-love, and six of the most amazing grandchildren in the world, we continue to edify and be edified by the body of Christ in our fellowship of Believers.
About Carolyn Marlowe Ministries
Let me share a little about the vision, ministry, and mission: A solely engaged with friends’ kind of person—not the least bit interested in school studies during my teens—and barely made it through a speech in my Public Speaking Class. The Lord imparted skills and gifting to share with the world in the following ways:
- Owned and operated an interior decorating/design business for 30 plus years.
- Trained under Precept Ministries (Kay Arthur) as a Bible Teacher.
- CLASS Certified Christian Speaker.
- Certified Christian Life Coach Alumni of Christian Coach Institute.
- Founder/Administrator of Carolyn Marlowe Ministries (CMM) a non-profit 501(c)(3) for Empowering connection with the Father for illuminating Jesus to and through Believers, by the power of His Spirit.
CMM serves alongside churches and ministries who are ministering to and helping families with day-to-day Christian living. Also, CMM ministers to women in rescue processes from human trafficking and restoring from all sorts of addictions. The need is critical in Upstate SC. We sit along a major corridor (I-26/I-85) ranking third in the nation for familial trafficking [family lures and enslaves other family members for personal gain]. Addictions of all sorts stretch across every race, gender, age, socio-economic status, religion, and region of our society.
GatHERings is a CMM Outreach hosting in Community Centers across Upstate, South Carolina. We pioneer community and city foundations and roots to uncover intriguing gems and at times, disturbing roots to correlate the findings to our lives and growth in Jesus Christ. Our passion is to herald what has become known as the GAFFERS Prayer and influence our culture for Christ. We are regaining oneness among Believers and reaching under-resourced families with essential needs (food, educational, and personal hygiene items). Simply, because We Love Where We Live.
It’s our desire to fulfill this co-mission with Spirit-led postures of bold love for one another, bowed knees in unity to our Lord, and brave PRAYER of evident repentance and faithful worship to our God.
What to Expect from CMM
Throughout the CMM site, we are empowering connection with our Heavenly Father, while illuminating Jesus to and through Believers by the power of His Spirit. This happens by deepening our relationships with Jesus, His Word, and Christian Community. And at the same time, fellowshipping with His Spirit.
Our prayer is you and I transform by His Spirit. We help illuminate Jesus through nurturing community, in-person events, and offering PRAYER Coaching and guides, Bible Study Courses, Facebook and online Groups, inspiring devotionals, and spiritual-growth resources.
We work eagerly and pray earnestly to find ways to help you grow stronger and live more radiantly in Jesus, His Word, and His Community. We gather online and for in-person events.
As a ministry, I have spent countless hours, over decades, helping Believers learn ways the Bible is relevant in each of our lives, along with ways to pray more effectively and powerfully. I want to help you get in on the greatest benefits of PRAYER—connection with the Father through Jesus, while fellowshipping with His Spirit. So, start saturating your spiritual oxygen [life-giver] in your communication with the Lord. You’ll gain a lifestyle of loving the Lord deeply, living His promises significantly, and praying as easy as taking your next breath.
All this is possible because I know first hand—it’s my testimony. If My Father, Papa-God, will do this for me, He will do it for you!”

Jesus said, “If you live in life-union with Me, If my words live powerfully within you—then ask whatever you desire, and it will be done” (John 15:7 TPT).
The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16 NIV).
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, does not waver between “Yes” and “No.” For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for His glory. It is God who enables us to stand firm for Christ. He anointed us and set His seal of ownership on us by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing everything He has promised us (See 2 Corinthians 1:19-22)
As an Author, Bible Teacher, and PRAYER Coach, we will dig deep into the PRAYER Book Series and Coaching Course: Pray Like This: A Seven-Session Bible Study Course ~ Where PRAYER Becomes the Oxygen in Your Relationship with the Lord, and My PRAYER Vault – A 31-Day Devotional-PRAYER Guide ~ The Place for Storing PRAYER Treasures (God’s Yeses and Your Amens) Releasing in 2024.
