Kara Carter, MDiv

Kara Carter has served as the lead pastor at Wellesley Mennonite Church since November 2011.  She graduated from the Waterloo Lutheran Seminary after having served as the Youth Pastor at Poole Mennonite Church from 2001 – 2008.   As a Mennonite student at the Seminary, Pastor Kara had the freedom to explore her own faith tradition within the rich diversity of an ecumenical and multi-faith setting as well as the role and calling of the church in a pluralistic society. In addition to her pastoral ministry Kara is a doctoral student.  

In addition to her pastoral ministry, Kara graduated October 2022 with a PhD in Pastoral Leadership.

Her research interests focused on barriers and facilitators impacting a mission church and the church’s calling to join with God to further God’s mission of restoration and reconciliation for all creation.
