Who is Ken Carter?
Ken Carter is resident bishop of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. Along with his Cabinet, he gives pastoral and administrative leadership to over 800 congregations, fresh expressions of church, campus ministries and outreach initiatives in an episcopal area that stretches from Tallahassee and Jacksonville to Miami and the Keys.
He came to the Florida Conference in 2012. This followed a ministry of almost thirty years in N.C. (twenty-nine as a local church pastor including several years at Christ United Methodist Church in Greensboro as associate pastor). He also serves as the President of the Council of Bishops of the United Methodist Church.
He is author of eleven books. In his most recent book, Embracing the Wideness of God’s Mercy, he writes: “Meditation is one of God’s ways of giving us access to a new way of seeing and being in relationship.” In his accompanying meditation he says: ” A heart at peace develops through practices like centering prayer. The sacred word in centering prayer can take us into the heart of God, which is peace. A heart at peace develops through the practice of silence.”
Bishop Carter and his wife, Pam, have been married for thirty-seven years. They have two adult daughters, Liz and Abby, and one granddaughter, Paige (by Abby and her husband Allen).
