Ward 1-Opportunities and Community outreach

Councilman Carter was born in Tampa, Fla., on McDill Air Force Base, where his father served in the U.S. Air Force. When he was 5years old, Councilman Carter and his family returned to his parents’ hometown of Bethany, where he grew up.

After graduating from Bethany High School, he followed in the footsteps of his father, uncle and grandfather and entered the service, joining the U.S. Army. An automobile accident led to opioid addiction and eventual discharge from the service, beginning a dark period in his life.

Years later, when after he met his wife, Amy, they began their journey together attending church, accepting Christ as their Savior and growing their own family. After losing Amy’s sister and brother-in-law to opioid overdoses just four months apart, they adopted their niece, completing their family of seven.

Motivated by their own redemption from opioid addiction, they began to build ministries and conduct outreach, opening doors of opportunity to help others find and fulfill their God-given purpose.
