Jonathan Merritt brings it. I'll be mentioning persecution more frequently.

On September 9th, I hosted Pat Hood and Caleb Crider on The Exchange. We discussed sending churches at the LifePoint Church in Smyrna, Tenn. Don't forget to join me every Tuesday at 3:00 PM Eastern for The Exchange.

Carter serves as the Pastor of Preaching & Vision at the Austin Stone Community Church in Austin, Texas, which has grown from a core team of 15 to over 7,000 attending each Sunday since the church began in 2002. He co-authored For the City, which explored what it would look like for a local church to be an advocate for the welfare of the city, and The Real Win (lfwy.co/RBeOEQ), a book on biblical manhood co-authored by NFL quarterback Colt McCoy.

He has also co-authored two group studies, Creation Unraveled and Creation Restored, which traced the gospel message through the book of Genesis.

Carter holds an M.Div. from Southwestern Seminary and is pursuing a D.Min. in Expositional Preaching from Southeastern Seminary. He and his wife Jennifer have been married for 16 years, and they have three children, John Daniel, Annie, and Samuel.
