Monticello—Jonathan Carter, of Monticello, will be nominated as president of the Kentucky Baptist Pastors’ Conference Nov. 9 in Elizabethtown, immediately prior to the Annual Meeting of the Kentucky Baptist Convention.
Carter, pastor of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, will be nominated by Travis Farris, senior pastor of Walnut Memorial Baptist Church in Owensboro.
“I feel that Pastor Jon would make an excellent candidate for this prestigious position because of his love for Southern Baptists’ conservative efforts,” Farris said in nominating Carter.
“He is a devoted pastor who has unashamedly voiced his love for Scripture,” Farris added. “He is bold in his convictions and presents them without compromise through the medium of SBC Today.”
Raised as the son of a United States Marine, Carter surrendered his life to Christ in 1999 after losing his father to cancer, Farris noted.
Prior to being called to Mt. Zion, Carter was a youth pastor for 10 years in North Carolina and Ohio. He is a graduate of Clear Creek Baptist Bible College and a student of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
“I am confident that he would lead the Pastor’s Conference with Southern Baptist integrity and with a desire to exhort his brother pastors,” Farris said of Carter. (WR)
