The Rev. Dr. Neal Carter




About Pastor Neal:

Dr. Neal Carter has been Senior Pastor at Rocky River Presbyterian Church since March 2016. He has come back home to Cabarrus County. Prior to his return to the area, he served three churches in North Carolina: in Beulaville, Mocksville, and Laurinburg. He is a graduate of the Duke Divinity School and Princeton Theological Seminary. Neal and his wife Deb have one adult daughter. They enjoy travel and music. Neal enjoys riding his mountain bike and playing guitar in local gigs and at church.

Neal is grateful for the privilege of returning home and serving this congregation in the heart of Cabarrus County. Building upon a wonderful foundation that spans over 265 years, his vision for RRPC is that we will be a welcoming community of faith that worships with joy, serves gladly, and seeks in all that we do to glorify God. His motto is “There’s always room for one more.”
