Robert Carter comes to Towson Presbyterian Church after serving as Pastor and Head of Staff at the Trinity Presbyterian Church in East Brunswick, NJ from 2006 through 2016. The son of a church musician, Rob describes himself as essentially a “preacher’s kid” who grew tired of the church and availed himself of the opportunity to step away from it as an undergraduate psychology major at The College of New Jersey.  But a life-changing internship during his senior year led him to postpone (and eventually turn down) a post-graduate fellowship at Columbia in order to enroll at Princeton Theological Seminary.  His intent was to spend a year at Princeton to get some theological background for his intended degree in counseling at Columbia.  God had other plans!
