Carson and his wife Maddy met while attending the University of Tennessee at Martin where he played baseball and she competed on the Equestrian Team. While at UT Martin, Carson got involved in several ministries. By the end of his four years he was leading FCA at UT Martin, College Ministry at his church, and had founded an organization that organized worship nights on campus. After college, Maddy received an offer to coach on the Liberty University Equestrian Team, which brought the two to Lynchburg, VA. This allowed Carson to begin his Masters of Arts in Christian Ministry at Liberty and brought the two to Brentwood Church.
