Burlington pastor to sign copies of book

May. 18, 2013 @ 11:21 PM

BURLINGTON, Ohio -- A longtime Burglington, Ohio, pastor is releasing a book that reflects on his life.

The Rev. Douglas Clayton Carter will be signing copies of his book "Journey Onward" from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, May 25, at Empire Books & News in Pullman Square in Huntington.

Carter has been a minister for 41 years and is the pastor of First Baptist Church of Burlington. He also serves as moderator emeritus of the Providence Regular Missionary Baptist Association, as first vice pesident of the Ohio Baptist General Convention, Inc., and he is a delegate-at-large for The National Baptist Convention USA, Inc.

The book shares Carter's story from growing up before segregation and during the Great Depression in Ironton to his role as a minister.

"I tell people that I've always wanted to be a good husband, father and citizen," Carter said in a release. "When I share my life story with people I meet, they always ask me 'How in the world did that happen?' I tell them that God has been good to me."

The book also includes reflections from his daughter, Tracy Carter-Morgan.
