About Us

Kristin is a Southern Georgia belle, who graduated from UGA as a veterinarian May 2010. Carter grew up in NC, went on to seminary, became an ordained pastor, and has completed his doctorate of ministry. Carter resided in SC for about 7 years (4 of these years with Kristin), and we now reside in FL. After about a month of emailing, asking questions, and going through the steps of eharmony.com, we were full of excitement and became very eager to meet one another face to face. October 25, 2009, we met and enjoyed every minute together. We had no doubt God was going to strengthen our relationship with Him as well as with one another. Carter proposed August 9, 2010 on the boat in the middle of Lake Wylie at sunset. Kristin said "Yes" after some happy tears. We got married April 2, 2011 and what an amazing beautiful day that was! God has continued to bless us throughout our marriage. We look forward to see what He has in store for us each and every day. We are super blessed to be down in Boca serving the Lord. God is constantly surprising us with new callings!

February: Carter's Corner

I will be in Charlotte at my second Doctoral Residency on February 2nd -15th. My first residency was two weeks in January- February 2013, and my third and final residency will be two weeks of February 2015. I can't believe my "middle" residency is here! Time has flown by. To prepare for this residency, I have completed some projects, read many, many, many books, written papers, studied scripture, and so much more. Kristin and I would greatly appreciate your prayers during these two weeks (well every day for that matter, but please take time these dates to lift us up to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ). I will definitely be challenged and stretched through this residency and the rest of this journey to come! This residency is called, Pastor as a Preacher, so these two weeks are about preaching and the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the world. I know it will continue to be a lot of hard work, but I’m very excited!!

A large part of this residency is studying the Word of God. I am thoroughly enjoying being challenged by my class to truly study the Word of God. Digging deeper and studying scripture is a joy of mine.

What is your first reaction when you think about studying/actually study the Word of God? 

Do you study the Word of God on a regular basis? Is it a joy to you?

What I mean by that is do you take time and do more than read but actually study it? Get into it, study the people, the places, the geography? Dig Deep?

If not, or if so, might I suggest a book: “Rick Warren's Bible Study Methods: Twelve Ways You Can Unlock God's Word.” Rick Warren talks about 12 ways to dig into and study the Word of God. It has many practical steps to get into studying scripture.

Let’s Dive Deep into the Word Of God!
