Ministry Staff

Caroline Norton Smith

Pastor Caroline joined Wilton Baptist Church as pastor in August of 2017. Both Caroline and her husband Josh are native Texans. They have two children, Bella and Noah, who greatly add to the joy of life!

Ordained to ministry in 2005, she and Josh served as missionaries in South Africa for many years during which time Caroline served as the pastor of a children’s home and founded the El Roi baby house for abandoned babies. Previously Caroline was on pastoral staff at the First Baptist Church of Glendale, California and the Church of the Heavenly Rest of Abilene, Texas.

Caroline is a proud graduate of Baylor University where she received her BA in religion, a Masters of Social Work and Masters of Divinity from the Truett Theological Seminary. In 2013 Caroline was awarded the highest honor of the Baylor School of Social Work when she was named Outstanding Alumni of the Year.

Caroline enjoys walking with people on their faith journey, sharing in the joys and struggles of life together. And for times of recreation can be found on the beach or scuba diving, enjoying a whole other creation!
