SPEAKERS

PASTOR CARTER CONLON

Carter Conlon is the senior pastor of Times Square Church. In 1994, he was invited by founding pastor David Wilkerson (author of The Cross and the Switchblade) to help pastor Times Square Church. He became the senior pastor in 2001.

Pastor Carter’s one-minute devotional, It’s Time to Pray, is featured on 1010 WINS, the nation’s most listened to all news station, as well as 320 additional radio outlets. He also hosts a half-hour radio program, A Call to the Nation, which is broadcast throughout the states. Pastor Carter has authored several books, which include The 180-Degree Christian, Fear Not, Unshakable, and soon to be released an autobiographical book, It’s Time to Pray.

God has led Pastor Carter to preach in countries around the globe, while continuing to be a sought-after conference speaker. He regularly speaks at World Challenge’s Renewing Your Passion for Christ conferences and Family Research Council’s Watchmen on the Wall among many others. In response to requests by ministers from all over the world for spiritual mentoring, Pastor Carter developed For Pastors Only, a bi-weekly devotional ministry. Conlon continues to actively serve on the Board of Directors for World Challenge (a ministry founded by David Wilkerson) and Summit International School of Ministry.

PASTOR DANIEL DECARY

Originally from Montreal, I was converted in 1983 at the age of 22. The young woman who led me to the Lord became my wife in 1984. At that time, I was working at the Douglas Mental Hospital as a specialized educator. I worked primarily with juvenile offenders. After my marriage, I felt the Lord's call to the ministry. So I began my Bible College and graduated in 1988. I accepted my first pastorate in the same year.

In 2006, after more than 20 years as a senior pastor in three different churches in Quebec, I founded the counseling ministry Brooks of Life after obtaining a Master’s Degree from the University of Sherbrooke in Pastoral Counselling to offer counseling services and give conferences on counseling subjects. In January 2007, I  joined the pastoral team at New Life Church in Longueuil Quebec where I am now in charge of the pastoral care department.

I have a permit from the Order of Psychologist of Quebec as a psychotherapist. As well, I am a faculty member of the ITF in Longueuil and associate professor at Laval University. I am also a certified Birkman personality profile consultant.

I hold a D.E.C. in Special Education, a B.A Theology, a B.A. in Psychology and an M.A. in Pastoral Counselling at the University of Sherbrooke.

 

PASTOR NIK GODSHALL

Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Nik Godshall felt called to full-time ministry at a young age. In 2004, he enrolled in Summit International School of Ministry and graduated in 2007. He currently serves at his alma mater as a professor and Director of Student Life. Additionally, he serves the campus church there as one of its Associate Pastors. Nik is also furthering his education in biblical and theological studies, so he can better serve those under his ministry. As a teacher, his passion is seeing people grow in their love for Jesus as they grow in their knowledge of who He is.

But exceeding his love of teaching and preaching is his love of date nights with his beautiful wife of 7 years, Christina, playtime with his son Noah, and hiking the beautiful trails of Pennsylvania.

 

CHRISTINA GODSHALL

Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Christina Godshall has always been a Southern girl at heart. Christina was brought up as a pastor’s daughter and loved the Lord and desired to serve Him from an early age. In 2005, she left her Southern roots and enrolled in Summit International School of Ministry in Pennsylvania. Since graduating in 2008, Christina has been employed by Summit where she has served in various capacities such as Director of Music, faculty, and Academic Assistant. Currently, Christina serves as the Dean of Academics and the Worship Director for Summit Community Church.

While life can often be chaotic juggling all her responsibilities, Christina’s greatest sense of joy comes from her three favorite roles: being wife to her best friend, Nik, being “Momma” to her greatest joy, Noah, and leading the Body of Christ in worship.
