Kenneth Carter

The Rev. Dr. Kenneth Carter

The Rev. Dr. Kenneth Carter led the November 2011 meeting of Pastor Theologians in Bangor.  Our work together was based on his most recent book on intercessory prayer.  Kenneth is Waynesville District Superintendent in the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church, a postion he assumed in 2011.  He has served as pastor to several United Methodist churches and for seven years prior to his appointment to the District he was Senior Pastor of the Providence United Methodist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Ken is the author of several books and a contributor to many others.  He maintains a blog entitled “Bear Witness To The Love of God in This World”.   Most recently he contributed to The Wesley Study Bible, The Abingdon Preaching Annual, and the Feasting On The Word commentary series.  Ken has spoken to groups across the country, and has preached in congregations ranging in size from very small mountain churches to congregations of more than five thousand members. Ken is a member of the College of Pastoral Leaders at Austin (TX) Theological Seminary and was a member of the Pastor-Theologian Program and, later, of the Pastor-Theologian Research Group of the Center of Theological Inquiry at Princeton.

He and his wife Pam have two daughters and their family also includes a young man from Haiti who is a student at Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama.  Ken’s hobbies are exercise, listening to music, writing and reading.  He and his wife have enjoyed traveling to England, Ireland, Israel, Guatemala, Haiti, Canada and China, and supporting the pursuits of their daughters.
