John Carswell | Senior Pastor

John is a man who loves God and loves people. He is passionate and confident in his calling to lead people to Christ. He believes that the best way to reach people is by building relationships with them and living Jesus in front of them. It is only after they see what a lifestyle sold out Jesus looks like that the Word can be planted in their hearts.  He has served at Parkview since May of 2012: first as Associate Pastor of Students and Families and was then called to be the Senior Pastor. John has served in two other churches where he helped build their student ministry in both students and leadership. Pastor John is a graduate of Gardner-Webb University and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is married to Kathy and they have one child; Jordan.

Jed Forystek | Worship Pastor

The Lord led Jed and his wife Katie to North Carolina in the summer of 2018. Together they have three beautiful children. He is grateful for the opportunity to serve Morehead City and lead Parkview in worship each week.

Jed seeks to continue building the worship ministry here at Parkview and uses the Bible as his guide to ministry. One of Jed’s favorite verses is found in John 4:23-24, “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and truth.”
