Payton Carter

Pastor Payton believes the most important thing he can tell you about himself is that he LOVES Jesus.  He is addicted to seeing lost people come to know Jesus, and seeing Jesus’ people grow in their love for Him. Payton has been married to his beautiful wife, Lyndsi since 2013, and they have 3 beautiful children: Micah, Elijah, and Miriam.


Payton joined our team in August of 2023, before coming to JMC he and Lyndsi served as missionaries to an apartment community in Southwest Fort Worth, and he worked in digital advertising sales for two different national media companies. He is currently attending Truett Theological Seminary at Baylor University.


When he’s not at the church, Payton loves playing with his family, watching his kids’ sports games, cheering for the Dallas Cowboys and the LSU Tigers, and going on dates with his beautiful wife.


Most importantly: Payton would LOVE to meet you. Call up to the office and schedule some time. He’d love to buy you coffee.
