Carlos was saved by Jesus Christ in the Summer of 2002, at Central Baptist Church of Daisetta, Texas, under the leadership of Bro. Jimmy Van Dorn. Before starting with FBC Devine on September 1, 2021, he served as Associate Pastor and Lead Pastors for a Southern Baptist Church in South Texas, served as a Hospice Chaplain, and completed a Year Chaplaincy Residence with Christus Santa Rosa, under the direction of Mrs. Mary Davis. He attended Hull-Daisetta High School in Daisetta, Texas, Lee College in Baytown, Texas, and the Baptist University of the Americas in San Antonio, Texas. He completed a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies and Theology and a Master of Divinity with Liberty University. He then came to work with FBC Devine after completing his Chaplaincy Residence Program, as Pastor Dan Newburg mentioned the opportunity to serve with a local church, and the added plus to work with a trusted leader and friend.
