Angela's roles have included pastor's wife, mother of eight, grandmother of 14, volunteer, public school teacher, homeschooler, Director of Youth and Children’s Ministries at Elliott Avenue Baptist Church in Springfield, Illinois and now, seminarian.
Although the process of arriving at seminary has taken nearly two decades, she is certain that now is the time. “I have a passion for teaching God’s word,” says Angela. “When I teach others, I grow and learn too and I think of the create program as an ‘equipping ground’ for many years of ministry.”
Mabee Challenge Grant
Central Receives Challenge Grant from the Mabee Foundation
The J.E. and L. E. Mabee Foundation of Tulsa, Oklahoma has issued a $500,000 challenge grant to Central for housing. The challenge grant means Central has to secure $1,000,000 in new gifts/pledges for the next phase of our capital campaign. Once Central has $1,000,000 in new pledges, the Mabee Foundation will award the $500,000 challenge grant.
The new pledges have to be secured by October 1, 2011.
The housing component of our campaign is flexible housing intended to be used a variety of ways.
