From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Carter Conlon (born 1953) is a Canadian-born American pastor and author. He is best known as the outgoing senior pastor of Times Square Church in New York City.[1]


Conlon was born and raised in Noranda, Quebec. He graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario where he received a bachelor's degree in law and sociology. In 1987, he left his 12-year career as a police officer to enter full-time ministry. He founded a church, a Christian school, and a food bank in Riceville, Canada. He owned and operated a sheep farm as well.[2] During those years, he also traveled throughout the country—speaking at various churches from Prince Edward Island to Alberta, to the Inuit people in the Arctic.

In 1994, he joined the pastoral staff of Times Square Church at the invitation of founding pastor, David Wilkerson.[3] He was appointed to the office of senior pastor in 2001.[4] Conlon announced in February 2020 that he would be stepping down as Senior Pastor of Times Square Church in May of the same year, passing the leadership to Tim Dilena, in order to focus on his radio ministry, speaking and writing books.[5]

He and his wife, Teresa, have three children and eight grandchildren.[6]


Times Square Church

Located at 237 West 51st in Manhattan, Times Square Church is an interdenominational church with more than 10,000 people in attendance, representing more than 100 different nationalities.[7] Their pastors believe that God has ordained the church to be a testimony of God's love and mercy to New York City and beyond. A major emphasis at Times Square Church is giving aid to the poor, the hungry, the destitute and the addicted.

Prayer in the Square

In 2006, Conlon called together the churches of New York City to congregate for one hour of prayer in Times Square. As a result, Prayer in the Square was birthed and Christians from all denominations assembled on Broadway. The prayer gathering grew to 80,000 live and 17.1 million online 2021[8] and 50,000 in 2009. Conlon and the Times Square Church choir led this event that was attended by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, as he declared that Sunday as Prayer in the Square Day.[9]

For Pastors Only

In 2010, Conlon created "For Pastors Only" in response to multiple requests he received from ministers seeking spiritual fathering. This online resource airs bi-weekly devotionals recorded by Conlon and an advisory team, currently accessed by more than 5,000 pastors worldwide.[10]

Radio Syndication

Conlon's 1-minute daily devotionals, It's Time to Pray, are broadcast on over 300 Christian radio stations nationwide 5 days per week, summoning the nation to prayer,[11] and are featured on 1010 WINS, the nation's most listened to all-news station.


In 2004, Conlon traveled with a team of more than 200 people from Times Square Church to Zambia to hold evangelistic and humanitarian outreaches.[12] After witnessing the plight of children living on the streets there, he began to pray about ways to help. This led to the establishment of ChildCry in 2005—a ministry of Times Square Church which currently provides more than 4,000 meals a day for children in over 22 countries.[13]

Feed New York

In 2012, Conlon initiated "Feed New York," where Times Square Church began to underwrite a number of churches in New York City with $1,000 worth of food every month. The goal was to provide up to 100 churches with a way to offer food, prayer, and hope to those in need in their neighborhoods. Although it began as a one-year initiative, Feed New York continues to support over 10,000 New Yorkers every month through food assistance programs within the five boroughs.[14]

Worldwide Prayer Meeting

In 2015, Conlon launched the World Wide Prayer meeting at Times Square Church. Every Tuesday night thousands of Christians gather to pray at Times Square Church, either attending in person or by participating through live streaming. This powerful service welcomes interactive involvement. Individuals send requests for prayer via the Internet, which are often immediately prayed over during the meeting. Churches and individuals in 199 countries and territories combine their prayers with that of Times Square Church's congregation every week. Since its inception, the World Wide Prayer meeting has received over 200,000 prayer requests and witnessed innumerable answers to prayer.[15]


To date he regularly speaks at World Challenge's Renewing Your Passion for Christ conferences, Conference Paris For Christ and for the Summer Fire Conference in Cork, Ireland. Pastor Conlon has also had the privilege of ministering for the Family Research Council's Watchmen on the Wall.[16]
