He and his wife, Brenda, are passionate about family ministry, specifically focused on the biblical pattern of marriage and raising children for Jesus Christ.

Carter is the oldest, and he has three sisters, Elliana, Addison and Felicity. Most of their days, outside of church ministry, are filled with the joy and craziness of having four children to shepherd. They enjoy biking, hiking, basketball, board games, and an occasional round of golf.
