    Kent and Kelcie Carter have been members at Alameda since 1980. Kent has been an elder since 2006. They are thrilled to serve their church family and are excited about Alameda’s vision to “Make Jesus Known.” The Carter's are blessed that their three adult children decided to move home from distant places to raise their families together. It is a bond that continues to grow through their grandchildren. Kent is a mortgage banker and enjoys assisting individuals and families in achieving the American Dream of homeownership. He has served on several professional boards and is the current commissioner for the Oklahoma Department of Consumer Credit representing over 8,000 mortgage lenders doing business in Oklahoma.
