Pastor Clint Carter and Kelsey
Pastor Clint and Kelsey met in elementary school and reconnected in college when Clint left Utah and moved back to Texas. They've been married since June of 2012, love the outdoors, and love to travel. Clint has been involved in church music for over 15 years and has developed a passion for leading people into the presence of God though music. He believes that God can speak to our souls through music in unique ways that we would not experience otherwise -- and that those times of worship should spur us on to worship with every aspect of our lives.
Fun Fact: Clint's professional resume includes work as an electrician, butcher, ski instructor, snow cone maker, math tutor, performing musician, and a bike technician.
Pastor Clint's One-Minute Witness:
"When I was younger I was only focused on myself, and what others could do for me - I didn’t really have a purpose. I grew up in church; I learned all about this God that supposedly made me, cared for me and died in my place so that I could have a relationship with Him, but didn’t really know Him. One evening, while my grandfather was praying with us before bed, I felt Jesus’ presence for the first time and felt Him say to me, “It’s time for you to know Me.” It felt like a personal introduction. At that moment I knew that He was not only real, but wanted a personal relationship with me. I asked Him to be the leader of my life that night.
"I vividly remember the sudden desire to tell everyone around me what I’d just experienced and a burden for others to have that same encounter with Jesus. Since asking Him to be my leader, I feel an unwavering purpose in life, a deep-seeded sense of connection and relationship, and an ultimate security that when I pass on from this life, I’ll get to spend the rest of eternity with Him.
I think if Jesus had not introduced Himself to me on my bedroom floor that night, I’d forever be living a 'me-centered' life, ineffectually searching for true fulfillment in all the relationships and experiences the world has to offer, and ultimately be left empty, unfulfilled, and wandering."
