About Us

Our Leadership

Craig Carter, President & CEO

Hello, I'm Craig Carter, President of Advent Christian Village. Many people tell me they feel something special when they drive through the gates of Advent Christian Village for the first time. They're right. Here, not only the staff cares for the members, but neighbors also look out for each other. This is a close-knit community.

We strive for quality in all that we do and measure ourselves by our mission, which is to express Christ's love by providing compassionate care and comprehensive services to those we serve.

George Washington Carver once said, “How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong; because someday in life you will have been all of these.”

Our goal each day is to live that attitude of compassion at Advent Christian Village, where accessibility to persons of all races, religions, nationalities and economic abilities has long been a cornerstone of Village life. 

I invite you to come and see for yourself just how truly special Advent Christian Village is.
