Carpenter Ministries was incorporated in 1980. It was an outgrowth of a ministry called Upper Room Women which was started in 1974 in the Detroit Metropolitan area. Upper Room Women was birthed by a young woman named Shirley M. Carpenter and held retreats in the Detroit area, as well as Chicago and Massachusetts.
