Bishop C. L. Carter, Sr.


Bishop Carter has made an incalculable contribution to the creation, the promotion and the maintenance of a healthy spiritual atmosphere in the community and at First Missionary, where he has the responsibility for the teaching, training and guidance of the ministers under his care and leadership.  He has constantly encouraged and actively assisted over twenty-five pastors in the establishment of their own churches. He serves in the Kingdom Connection Fellowship International, under the leadership of Bishop Jerome H. Ross, Sr., as the third Presiding Bishop.

Bishop Carter, a godly man, exhibits the heart of a true shepherd. Just like the shepherd, Bishop Carter is available to his flock 24/7. He is a Bishop who is interested in every area of his members’ lives. His love and concern for God’s people are not confined to the walls of his church only.  Through the media ministry of the church as well as his prayerful counseling of other pastors and ministers, Bishop Carter’s impact upon the spiritual welfare of this church, this community, this state and this country is as far reaching as it is immeasurable.  He is dedicated and committed to serve as a voice of the voiceless.

Bishop Carter’s unlimited love and devotion to the First Missionary family and the community is a precious gift from God to us. Bishop Carter is truly God’s Minister, Counselor, Teacher, Healer, Prophet, Evangelist and Preacher to every man, woman, boy and girl.
