The Pottery Lady

Carole Wolaver Ministry



Carole has been a potter since 1980. She has been married to the love of her life, Wayne since 1978. Her husband, Wayne, served as senior pastor at Calvary Chapel in the San Fernando Valley, CA for eleven years. During those years, Carole was involved with Children's Ministry and a Women's Bible Study. 
Carole and Wayne are now living in Nashville, Tennessee. 
Carole has been presenting "The Master's Pieces" since 1993. She has spoken at thousands of churches nationwide. Internationally she has spoken in Mexico and Germany and has made appearances on the Carol Lawrence Show on TBN and Lifestyles of the Rich in Christ Jesus. 
All of Carole's messages are dramatically presented from the potter's wheel. The Master's Pieces, her original presentation, is 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" has a little different twist and is presented from the vessel's perspective; how we see ourselves. She 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" is a dramatic adaptation of the book of Job told from the potter's house. "Hands to Worship, Hearts to Serve, Feet of Clay" is the story of Mary and Martha and Lazarus, as seen from Martha's perspective. This takes you through Martha’s spiritual journey with Jesus. “The Road to Emmaus” is 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's unique style of story telling, mixed with her skill at the potter's wheel bring scripture to life in a very visual way. 
Born into a Jewish home, Carole received Jesus as her Messiah back in 1977.
She and Wayne were married for many years before they were blessed with the miracle of their first child... And then their second....and third! She is a testimony of how God fulfills the desires of your heart. She is the mother of three adult children; Katy, Jennie and David. Carole also has an amazing story of adoption. 
Carole's pottery can be found in thousands of homes, not only nationally, but world-wide. Her unique Raku style and Hebrew designs make her pottery look like it was dug up from an ancient Israeli Tel. Her pottery is a visual reminder of God's loving touch upon our lives. 
Carole's 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.
