Pastor Rex Carringer was born in Georgia, but raised here in Florida. He accepted Christ as his Savior when he was 19 years old. He answered the call to preach at the age of 21. In June of 1992 he married Ms. Christy Riggs. Pastor Rex pastored his first church at the age of 24 in Apopka, Florida. He became the pastor of Riverland in November of 1997 when the Lord called him to Dunnellon where he and his wife currently reside with their four children: Nicole, Keith, Kurt, and Luke.
