Heather Carter

Children's Director — Birth–2yrs Oldoffice: 704-892-8005

One of Heather’s earliest memories is of her father sharing Romans 10:9:  “…if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Later in a private moment by herself, Heather step by step committed her life to Christ.

Knowing firsthand the value of having scripture poured into children at a very early age has fueled her love of God’s Word and her passion to see children’s ministry be intentional in the way it speaks and prays the Word over the tiniest of children.

After seminary studies, Heather worked in the airline industry for 24 years, always conscious that wherever you are placed is God’s mission field for you. 

Along with her more than 23 years of leadership and training experience in retail and service industries, Heather comes to Grace with over 8 years of service as a children’s ministry leader.

Married for 35 years, Heather and Michael have been blessed with four children and have known the joy of watching them follow Jesus from an early age.
