He has been involved in developing leadership structures through the various phases of church growth and working with other church leaders, throughout Europe particularly. As well as pioneering in local churches to see the full potential of Christianity realised through the daily lives of individuals, he has a particular passion to see the world of medicine affected by the power and love of God, and for Christian healing to sit alongside good medicine for the sake of any who choose to benefit from it.

Dave Carter is a director at Eastgate, with specific responsibility for youth and young adults, and also works as a full-time GP. Dave grew up in the church his parents planted and then lived in Southampton for 7 years before moving back in 2009 having felt called to be part of what the church was doing.

She has also worked in commissioning healthcare over the last 10 years, being initially involved with the roll-out of improving access to psychological therapies in Kent. She is involved in the Healing Center at Eastgate. She believes that medicine is a wonderful gift and an important science, but that we have sometimes over-medicalised people’s needs and she is passionate about exploring ways that communities can thrive. She is also a talented musician and with her husband plays in a jazz band, raising money for local charities.
