We love Jesus.

Kevin Carter

Originally from Northwest Florida, Brother Kevin came to us after pastoring churches in Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee, and South Carolina. A proud veteran of the U.S. Navy, he studied at the University of West Florida, The Baptist College of Florida, and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. As he grew up with a rural/agrarian background, Brother Kevin loves the outdoors. Happily married since the late 90s, Brother Kevin and his wife have been blessed with a large and loving family.

Brother Scott's favorite scripture passage is Ephesians 2:4-5: "But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,  made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved."
