Associate Pastor-Tom Carter
Tom and his family came to West Monroe from Garland, TX, in July of 2018 to serve at Ridge Avenue.
"My faith journey began when I was saved at the age of fifteen at summer camp with a Baptist youth group. It became my belief that Jesus is the Son of God who has taken the punishment for my sins and redeemed me to new, eternal life, removing my penalty for sin and imputing to me His righteousness."
"After my salvation experience it also became clear that God did not want me to be a bystander to His work and called me to something more. In the years since my salvation I have been licensed and ordained. I have continued to serve in several lay leadership positions. Some of my favorites have been as Bible Drill small group leader, camp counselor at Riverbend/Mt. Lebanon, GED ministry, mentoring, outreach and discipleship."
Tom graduated magna-cum-laude from UNT with his BA in Sociology with a Psychology minor , Go Mean Green! He is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Theological Studies from Dallas Baptist University.
The Lord has blessed Tom with his faithful wife Dee and four children who have encouraged and served beside him along this journey. The Carters’ commitment to the Lord as a family includes full participation in church services and activities as a family.
Tom's life verse is 1 Corinthians 10:31 which reminds us all that, “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
