About My Family

My name is Daniel Carter, and my family and I are honored that you desire to partner with us to reach the San Diego military population for Christ. My wife, Rachelle, and I have been married since 2017. On May 9, 2019, we welcomed our first child, Ruby.

God has given my wife and me hearts burdened to reach the military community for Christ. I served in the Marine Corps Reserve for five years and was able to see the great need for the gospel firsthand. I felt resolved to spend my life making Jesus known among Marines. From 2016–2019, my wife and I served as missionary staff with Cru Military in Camp Pendleton, Calif., where our burden only grew to see the military community encountered, equipped and empowered with the gospel through the local church. We can't wait to start the church to which God is calling us!

About My Church Plant

I am leading a church planting team to reach the military community for Christ in San Diego. We will be the ninth church plant in the Praetorian Project, which specifically plants churches outside military installations (praetorianproject.org).

Our church vision is simple— to know Jesus and make Him known—yet our scope is great, like our God! We desire to plant a church that multiplies in planting other churches throughout San Diego, the nation and even the world.

Would you partner with us to reach the San Diego military population for Christ?

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.
