Pastor M. Darice Carlton

Pastor Darice Carlton, a native of Washington, D.C., is an anointed teacher and speaker who demonstrates her love of God to others at The Temple of Healing Waters in Dulles, Virginia.  As the wife of Dr. Chad Carlton, she and her husband were led by the Lord to begin a prophetic ministry, focused on helping those in need of restoration and healing.  The Temple of Healing Waters opened its doors on March 6, 2006, and exploded with miracles of healing, as well as souls being saved and delivered.  Pastor Darice is the Executive Pastor  for Healing H20, which oversees Marketing, Advertising, Evangelism, Social Media, WOW (Women On Water – Women’s Ministry).  She also governs a women’s community group, Diva’s With Divine Purpose, organized for the sole purpose of empowering women to realize God-given dreams.

Annually, Pastor Darice travels to the Dominican Republic to feed & clothe over 500 children for the #CarolsLove mission initiative in memory of her aunt, Carol Groves, who passed away of osteopathic cancer in 2014.  Her efforts embody the quintessential ideals of unconditional love, which Carol exemplified, and an untiring commitment to make the lives of others better.  Pastor Darice believes such a contribution in Carol’s memory is an embodiment of Jesus’ witness of God’s compassion on earth.

With a gift to serve instilled in her at an early age by her mother, Pastor Darice is always ready to help those around her in need.  As the only child of Deaconness Paulette Farrell, a hardworking single parent, Pastor Darice was not only taught but also shown the example of what it meant to live by faith and not by sight.  She learned early on that nothing was impossible if she believed.  As a result of her mother’s sacrifice, she always had the best, and education was always of the utmost importance as well as broadening her horizons.  From the finest of finishing schools to overseas travel, her mother ensured that although no father was present, her child never felt at a disadvantage because of it.  Because of her positive upbringing in spite of challenges, Pastor Darice has a heart to help others work past obstacles to achieve God’s destiny for their lives.

With a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from The University of Maryland, Lady Carlton held prominent positions in Communications and Internet Marketing, including employment at Fox TV, CBS Sportsline, America Online and Comcast.  However, after the birth of their first child, she returned to work and immediately turned her resignation in to give her full attention to her husband and son.  She has never regretted that decision.  Since then, she has become licensed in real estate and has been a real estate investor and agent for over 14 years.  Whatever position Lady Carlton has held, she has always sought to help others walk in their God-given purposes and gifts.

Out of Pastor Darice’s many accomplishments, she believes her primary purpose is to support her husband, Dr. Chad Carlton, and to lovingly raise Godly children.  She is blessed to have a son, Dylan, and twin girls, Dru and Denver.  She firmly believes in the importance of demonstrating God’s love as the best example to teach her children.
