Lee Carter, Ph.D

Chaplain; Assistant Professor of Religion
Dr. Lee Carter, WPU professor and Reverend.

If you are taking a course in religion at Peace, it’s more than likely that Dr. Carter will be your instructor. He began teaching at Peace as an adjunct instructor in 2007 and came on full-time in January 2011, where he now wears two hats at Peace: as teacher and as chaplain. Dr. Carter is a south Jersey native who met his wife, Pam, at Furman University back in the early 1970’s. Together, they have two adult children, Jonathan and Christa, and two grandchildren. His favorite Raleigh restaurant is Sitti. When he’s not leading worship or teaching, you can catch Dr. Carter playing the guitar or banjo.

“I love being surrounded by a wonderful staff, faculty members, and of course, our incredible students.”
