Randy & DOnna Carter
STM is about change.
Speaking. Teaching. Mentoring.
We believe that God can change hearts, and when He changes a person’s heart their whole life is changed! Our passion is to partner with christian groups to see God change hearts and lives of youth and adults.
Our mission is to serve the body of Christ by supporting the local church and other Christian organizations’ efforts at evangelism, discipleship, and leadership training. We will do this through relevant, entertaining, and challenging messages, coaching and a variety of media tools.
In the fall of 1993, Randy Carter, a youth pastor of 11 years with the Christian and Missionary Alliance felt God’s direction to move out of local church youth ministry to begin traveling full time as a youth speaker and youth ministry consultant. By December of 1993 STM Ministries was founded as a registered charitable organization with a volunteer board of Directors to allow Randy to pursue this calling. July 1, 1994 Randy stepped out of his local youth ministry and into STM full time, speaking primarily to students. In June 2001 Randy’s wife, Donna, an author and evangelist, joined STM. She travels speaking to women’s groups and mixed audiences. Randy and Donna also speak at marriage conferences and retreats, and are active members in their home church of First Alliance Church.
Randy Carter has a passion for student ministry, in fact he says. ”Why would anyone choose to work with adults when they can work with students?” His unique blend of humour and direct approach to truth allows him to captivate the listener and drive home the truth in a relevant and meaningful way.
Randy has been in youth ministry since 1983, and is also a mentor and consultant for Youth Ministries across Canada.
Before 2014 Randy and Donna both thought they had a pretty good marriage but that year their relationship hit a wall. That crisis became the catalyst for a renaissance in their marriage. They now realize they didn’t know how great their marriage could be.
By inviting participants into the struggles and successes of their own marriage, they have helped to rescue, enrich and heal the marriages of others.
Donna Carter has a unique ability to synthesize life experience into digestible life lessons. She is sought after as a Christian women speaker internationally because of her passion, humour and the light-bulb moments she triggers for people seeking help on their spiritual journeys. Best-selling author and international speaker, Donna is a cultural creative and channels her influence and aesthetic energy into speaking, writing, broadcasting, painting and podcasting.
