Dr. Randy Carter, Senior Pastor
Randy began pastoring New Hope on February 25, 2019 after 15 and a half years in Hillsborough, NC and 5 years previous to that in Granville County, NC. Before pastoring, he served with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship for 2 and a half years as a campus minister at San Francisco State University. Randy was born in Texas but has been in NC since 1998. I think at this point, the only thing that would get him back to TX is the state seceding from the union. He would feel obligated to support the nation of Texas. Thankfully, that doesn’t seem likely. They love NC and they’re loving Raleigh! Randy is happily married to Rebecca and they have 7 children – 3 homegrown, 4 adopted. If you ever have an interest in adoption, especially locally through foster care, please reach out.
Randy is excited to be at New Hope Baptist Church. He states that we have great challenges ahead of us but Jesus will lead us together as we lift Him up!
