Rev. Jerry M. Carter, Jr., Ph.D.

Rev. Jerry M. Carter, Jr. is a native of Columbus, Ohio. He was called to the Calvary Baptist Church of Morristown, New Jersey in 1990 and during his tenure as the 14th Pastor, he has impacted Ministry that has consequences that extend well beyond Calvary and the Morristown Community. He is a highly sought-after revivalist, keynote speaker and lecturer who has been invited to share the Gospel on various platforms throughout the Country.

Those who regularly “sit” under Pastor Carter’s preaching, teaching and tutelage have greatly benefitted from his anointed divining and proclamation of the Word of God and its profound ability to change lives. With a prescience of its eventual ramifications, Dr. Carter would found the “How Shall They Hear” Preaching Conference to further encourage, prepare and strengthen those with “…beautiful.. feet..” who would bring “Good News” to the world.

He has inspired a greater connection to a more spiritual lifestyle through two published works: The Empowered Life: Living Well In The Spirit and; The Journey To Purpose: Navigating Your Spiritual Path. Rev. Carter has also contributed to the New Interpreters Handbook of Preaching, Oxfords Sermons Volume III, Evangelizing the Black Male in the 21st Century and the African American Pulpit.

Adding to his influence as a voice of renown are adjunct assignments at Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, New Jersey; Drew Theological School, Madison, New Jersey; New Brunswick Theological Seminary, New Brunswick, New Jersey; and The Samuel Dewitt Proctor School of Theology – Virginia Union University, Richmond, Virginia.

Dr. Carter received his own training at Dennison University in Granville, Ohio (BA); Princeton Theological Seminary (MDiv.); and Drew Theological School (Ph.D.). His specialty of Expository Preaching won him the Prize of the same name at Princeton in 1990.

Rev. Carter currently serves as the President of the African-American Clergy Association of Morris County in New Jersey. He is also the proud father of three children, Jerry M. III, Zachary Daniel and Camille Ashley.
