In January Dr. Terrell Carter was appointed as director of contextualized learning. As the director Carter is responsible for the overall development, implementation, daily operation, and evaluation of the internship and capstone projects for the new master of divinity curriculum. As of January 15, the executive committee of Central’s board of trustees elected Carter to Central faculty as Assistant Professor of Practical Theology.
Provost and Dean of the Seminary Dr. Robert E. Johnson welcomes Carter’s addition to the faculty:
“I am pleased beyond words to have Dr. Terrell Carter join Central’s faculty as
Director of Contextualized Learning and Assistant Professor of Practical Theology.
The curricular components he will help engineer and oversee are vital to Central’s
revised Master of Divinity degree. Dr. Carter brings the credentials, proven
expertise, and vision needed to make this work to the benefit of our students.”
Carter reflects, “For most of my professional career, I have been praying for an opportunity to serve in a position like this that would allow me to help students of varying backgrounds and abilities as they discern God’s will for their lives.” Carter recently completed his doctor of ministry degree with Central and is also serving as the senior pastor of Webster Groves Baptist Church in St. Louis, Missouri.
He brings to the position almost a decade of experience in field education development and supervision, as well as 12 years of teaching and academic administration experience. He most recently served as the site coordinator for Central Seminary’s ministry certificate program in St. Louis, Missouri. Carter also brings experience as executive director of two non-profit organizations in the St. Louis area.
