Carter Conlon

Carter Conlon, speaker for “It’s Time to Pray” and “A Call to the Nation,” is the pastor of Times Square Church in Manhattan, an interdenominational church with over 10,000 people in attendance.  The congregation represents more than 100 different nationalities.  Times Square Church also recently welcomed 700 home satellite fellowships worldwide as it continues to expand its reach.

In 1994, Carter was invited by David Wilkerson, author of the best-selling book, The Cross and the Switchblade, to help pastor Times Square Church.  He became the senior pastor in 2001.  From the very beginning, Conlon’s heart has always demonstrated a passion for prayer, leading him to host Prayer in the Square, a gathering in Times Square for prayer, and currently the World Wide Prayer meeting.  Every Tuesday night thousands of Christians gather to pray at Times Square Church.  Individuals from 199 countries and territories participate in person or through live streaming.

God has led Conlon to preach in countries around the globe while continuing to be a sought-after conference speaker every year.  He regularly speaks at World Challenge’s Renewing Your Passion for Christ conferences and for the Family Research Council’s Watchmen on the Wall, among others.  He also serves on the Board of Directors for World Challenge and Summit International School of Ministry.

He’s authored several books, including The 180-Degree Christian, Fear Not, Unshakable, and his autobiography, It’s Time to Pray.

Carter Conlon’s one-minute daily devotional, “It’s Time to Pray,” is heard on over 320 outlets nationwide.  It continues to be featured on 1010 WINS, the nation’s most listened to all-news station.  And his new weekly, half-hour radio program, “A Call to the Nation” is aired on radio outlets throughout the country.

Pastor Carter is married to Dr. Teresa Conlon, President of Summit International School of Ministry.  They are parents of three grown children and eight grandchildren.
