Meet the Ministry Team

Majors Elvie & Colleen Carter
Corps Officers

Major Elvie Carter, a native of Pittsburgh, received his bachelor's degree in education from Cal U (California University of Pennsylvania), and his Master of Ministry degree in applied theology from MVNU (Mount Vernon Nazarene University). For over 30 years he has served in a variety of positions in The Salvation Army, both as an employee and as an officer (pastor). In addition to his deep commitment to ministry, the major has a passion for social services, and he has worked tirelessly over the years to bring awareness and reform to the field of social services. He believes there is no joy comparable to serving others. His hobbies include basketball, football, fishing, boating, gardening and raising cichlids. His life verses are found in Proverbs 3:5-6, (“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” (NKJV).

Major Colleen Carter is from Seward Pennsylvania, an hour north in Pittsburgh. For the over 30 years Colleen has served as an advocate for the neglected and she lives by Psalms 82:3 “Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.” She genuinely loves people and believes in second chances. She was once asked, “What is your hobby?” She simply replied, “Loving people!” Fanny Crosby’s hymn “Rescuing the Perishing” describes her life. Major Colleen met her husband while studying at Cal U (California University of Pa). She holds an AA in accounting, BA in business administration and an MS in counseling. 

Married for nearly 29 years, they have six children, two grandchildren, two malti-poos and a great love for many others. Both count it an honor and privilege to serve in the ministry. Their greatest desire is to exemplify Christ as servant leaders. They are looking forward to working hand-in-hand with the soldiers, officers and friends of the Kroc Corps Community Center.
