Obituary of Bro. Paul Carter

Private graveside funeral services for Bro. Paul “Preach” Carter will be held Saturday, May 16, 2020 at Antioch Cemetery, Farmerville, LA, for immediate family only. Bro. Steve Spear and Bro. Rubin Weaver will be officiating the services, under the direction of Golden Funeral Home of Bastrop. Bro. Paul, a Southern Baptist minister, and currently serving as pastor of Conway Baptist Church, passed away Tuesday, May 12, 2020, at the age of eighty-three. Through the moving of the Holy Spirit’s hand Bro. Paul was able to have part in over seven thousand professions of faith throughout his sixty-five year ministry. Preach served as pastor of fourteen churches over the span of his ministry, serving two of the churches on three different occasions. He was also the founding pastor of First Baptist Church, Wasilla, Alaska. Bro. Paul was a pastor that engaged himself in the lives of all church members, from the youngest to the oldest, establishing relationships that lasted a lifetime. Not only was he a dedicated pastor, he was an effective evangelist and preached hundreds of revivals all over the United States. He was proud of the "preacher boys" that he had impacted down through the years, as well. In addition to his preaching ministry, Bro. Paul was an accomplished outdoorsman that loved to hunt and fish. His commercial fishing ability was unrivaled, and down through the years, he caught literally thousands of pounds of catfish. His love for catching fish was only surpassed by his love for being a "fisher of men". Preach loved his family beyond measure and he is survived by his wife of 62 years, Audie Carter; sons, Rick Carter and wife Sissy, Randy Carter and wife Heather, and Reggie Carter and wife Norma; sister, Rosa Cain; brother, Jack Carter; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, relatives and friends. Bro. Paul is preceded in death by his parents, Jeff and Myra Carter and his beloved grandson Dustin Carter. His race is run and his faith is now sight. "Well done, good and faithful servant."
