Ken Carter (Chaplain)

I pastored a church in our home town for 10 years before being called to the chaplaincy. We held church services in the backstretch of Mohawk until it closed in 2014. I returned to the church in Grand Valley as well as continuing the chaplaincy until November of 2019 when I left the church to devote more time to my calling as chaplain. I am open to speak in churches in the area to promote the chaplaincy work. Since Covid19 has influenced the racing industry in such a huge way with the cancelling of racing, most of my time now is being spent visiting training centres and farms to meet with those directly affected by the pandemic.
