Warren David Carter
March 23, 1951, to February 14, 2011
ACTION missionary Warren Carter went to be with his Savior on February 14, 2011, after suffering a severe head injury while skiing in Salzburg, Austria, on February 8. The Carters are members of Discipling the Nations in the USA and ACTION Canada and have served for many years in Europe. Warren did leadership development and discipleship, particularly in countries which were behind the former Iron Curtain.
Warren received the Lord on June 24, 1967, at Camp of the Woods in New York as a high school student after a Cornell professor of astrophysics explained the gospel using pictures of the universe.
Warren received a BS in engineering and an MBA from Cornell University, studied economics at the University of Connecticut, and received a leadership diploma from Fuller School of World Missions. He spoke English, German, and Spanish fluently. Before becoming involved in missions, Warren worked in executive positions with Fortune 500 companies from 1974-1985.
Warren served with his wife, Leanne, and their family in Baden, near Vienna. They were accepted on June 10, 2003, as Associate Missionaries with ACTION Canada. From 2003 until his death, Warren was the European Leader of Discipling the Nations, a ministry which seeks to multiply church leaders, minister to local churches, and evangelize those who do not know Christ. Warren focused on leadership development and mentoring pastors in Austria and beyond to East and Central Europe.
Warren is survived by his wife, Leanne; three sons, Christopher, Jonathan, and David; daughter-in-law, Liz; and three grandchildren, Genna, Maegan, and Jackson.
