The Carters are long-term Calvary people who have served the Lord in East and Central Europe since 1987. Leanne’s husband Warren went home to be with the Lord in February 2011 after a skiing accident.

Leanne and their boys, Jonathan and David, remain on the field. Leanne’s focus is discipleship and mentoring of women in leadership. She also teaches English in the local elementary school, works with Hearts at Home encouraging and educating moms and serves on the national and local leadership level of Wounded Hearts Ministries (a discipleship ministry) with a special emphasis on leadership development. This conference is a huge blessing to women living in the post-Christian context of Europe.

Leanne and the boys are active in their local church and are thrilled to have such a wonderful church family just down the street from their home.
