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!

HE IS RISEN: April Pastor's Porch

Easter is a fun time of the year to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I’m always excited to celebrate Jesus at the resurrection. I think Easter is such a great time to not only celebrate Christ, but also to SHARE the excitement and resurrection with others. Easter is still a holiday where people are more likely than others to actually come to church. I know there are people out there who would only come Easter Sunday who don’t usually come to church. There are people who, if asked (maybe asked a couple of times and reminded), will say “yes” and maybe they need to be picked up or met somewhere. However, they are only interested in coming to church on Easter Sunday. Because of that, all members and friends of Glades need to take some time these next few weeks and reach out to those people that we know who don’t have a church home or don’t worship regularly.

What I LOVE about Easter is that we celebrate it EVERY SUNDAY.

That is why Christians worship Sunday instead of the Jewish Saturday worship: because we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ every week.

That is the celebration and joy that we celebrate weekly as we gather with the Body of Christ (remember that is what God considers Glades!).

Matthew 28:5b-7a “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where He lay. Then go quickly and tell!”

As we think about worship each Sunday, let’s remember that every week, we celebrate Easter here at Glades and that we are told to GO QUICKLY and tell!
