Rev. Christopher S. Carter Sr. is the third son of Pastor Charles and Linda Carter. With his lively personality he made the family complete. In dual capacity, his parents laid the foundation of Christian principles and family.
Minister Carter is a product of the Klein Independent School District. Throughout school, teachers regarded him as being jovial, upstanding, a leader and an overall good guy. As a student at Klein Forest High School, from 1990-1994, he aided in founding their first gospel choir and led his football team as an All District Player. So it was no surprise when he desired to attend Howard Payne University in Brownwood,Texas to study education and play football.
While attending Howard Payne, he formed an alliance with several young men and one by one they all accepted the call to help equip the saints and build God's Kingdom. He united with Greater Faith Community Church under the watch care of Pastor A. C. Blake. As he partook of his assignment to minister, God elevated him as Youth Pastor. He was also led to work for the Texas Youth Commission where he served as a Juvenile Correctional Officer Supervisor.
Young and full of energy, he returned home to Houston, Texas in 1998. At his home church, Strait Life Missionary Baptist Church, he was appointed Minister of the Youth and Music Departments. Maintaining his passion for working with what society called at risk students, he began working at Community Education Partners where he has held several positions.
Still seeking God's will, in 2002 he began No Excuses Cowboy Church and galloped into the hearts of cowboys and cowgirls preaching the Gospel at the rodeo. Preaching, Singing, Dancing, and Praising the Lord 110%, God's plan further elevated him in 2007 to heed His voice and let the True Vine Missionary Baptist Church of Barrett Station, Texas share his
heart. God had a grand design, He had a plan and He had a man for the "Vine"!
Pastor Carter united in love in 1997 with Brandi Patterson of Brownwood,Texas. Born to this union were Christopher II, Savannah and Brailyn.
