Vicar Bishop Jerry M. Carter was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH. At the age of seven, under the leadership of Elder Thomas Howell, he joined the House of God. During the 1977 Annual Convocation in St. Petersburg, FL, the late Chief Apostle, Bishop S.P. Rawlings, appointed Bishop Carter as Pastor of the House of God, Fort Wayne, IN.

Bishop Carter has undertaken many projects in the local, state, and national church. In 1998, the Fort Wayne church became more involved in community outreach.  Initially, a new multi-purpose facility was constructed, and today it serves as our full-time Kingdom Kidz Childcare Ministries. Following that project, new homes, along with a senior citizen duplex, were added for the beautification of the community.  Lastly, the most recent project was the total renovation of our local assembly which included a new addition to our sanctuary.  Truly, God has given Bishop Carter a vision to help the people of God and he continues to do so.

Bishop Carter is married to Lady Marilyn Carter. He is president of United Contractors, Inc., a general contracting company in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He has received two honorary degrees from KCCR: Bachelor of Divinity and a Doctorate of Divinity.





The House of God Worldwide Outreach headquarters is located in Fort Wayne, In., and has been for 47 years! Bishop J.M.

We believe in salvation only through the Lord Jesus Christ. We keep the 7th day Sabbath & Feasts of the Lord. We are excited about what the Lord is doing, and we want to be an encouragement to someone that is seeking a stronger relationship with God. We are now starting a partnership ministry.
