He attended the American Baptist College in Nashville, Tennessee, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology. Lewter also holds the Master of Divinity degree in Christian Education from the Morehouse School of Religion at the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, Georgia and continued studies at Clark Atlanta University for the Doctor of Education with an emphasis in Educational Administration. Reverend Lewter is studying at Truett Seminary at Baylor University in Waco, Texas where he is pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree.
Reverend Lewter is the third dean of the Johnson-Phillip All Faiths Chapel at Prairie view A&M University in Prairie View, Texas. During his tenure, Lewter has initiated many ministries that have enhanced and promoted spiritual growth among students, faculty and staff. In May 2000, Revered Lewter received the Outstanding Service Award in the Division of Student Affairs, and more than three times he has received the Dean and Male Administrator of the Year awards. While focusing on building an ecumenical and inclusive ministry, history was penned in Prairie View’s archives when the first female pastor was featured as the convocation preacher/speaker for the Annual Ministers’ Conference. Because of his vision, the conference has now become a more inclusive vehicle for ministry among men and women.
