According to David Wilkerson Founding Pastor, Times Square Church, New York “Carter Conlon is a true man of God who lives what he preaches. He has been given a special anointing of the Holy Spirit to deliver the Word of God with straightforwardness and authority yet with mercy and grace. When this man preaches, you know you have truly heard from God’s throne.”
