For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Mark 10:45

Colter grew up in Austin, Texas where he enjoyed camping and exploring the Central Texas hill country.  After high school, Colter moved to Orange County, California to study Christian Education Leadership at Concordia University in Irvine.  During his university years, he also took up an exchange semester in Chicago and a yearlong youth ministry internship with a church plant in Indio, California.

Colter then spent 3 years teaching English at beginner as well as university levels in Kazakhstan, where he still has many dear friends.  He savored Kazakh hospitality, delighted in exploring local culture, helped raise up a handful of Church leaders, and enjoyed meaningful conversations with countless remarkable people.

From there, Colter continued his training for intentional gospel proclamation with Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri.  The Seminary assigned him a pastoral internship (vicarage) in Woodbury, Minnesota for one phenomenal year of deeper ministry exposure before sending him to study with Westfield House in Cambridge, England for a blessed year of academic and cultural enrichment.  He then served 6 years as pastor making disciples in a multiethnic neighborhood of Sacramento, California.

In his freetime, Colter enjoys learning songs on guitar, finding art in just about anything, mentoring young folk, conversations around a campfire, reading about meaningful ideas, and going on adventures with other people.

Please pray for Colter as he serves with MCN among the minority Christian peoples of Central Asia.
