Pastor Antoine Lee of Central Christian Church in Kansas City was eager to complete seminary, but work, family – and cost – made a Master of Divinity degree program seem unobtainable, until Rev. Debra Sermons, Central's Director of Recruitment, told him about the create program and the thoughtful planning that goes into each individual's schedule.
The create program is fully scholarshiped, schedules are designed for busy people, and classes are offered in Kansas City's urban core. “It was like they met all my needs before knowing my personal situation!” says Antoine. “I express sincere gratitude for everyone who was involved in making it possible for me to continue my education. Thank you!”

No, Central is not giving academic standing to those who bribe the Dean! The Dean’s List is a group of individuals who understand that the contemporary church faces significant challenges and decisions that require capable leaders who listen to God and can move forward with courage. They want to invest in Central’s constantly evolving academic programs to ready graduates to minister with a missional outlook to a diverse world.
Dean’s List members will receive periodic updates about what we are working on in the academic division. You will also receive a Dean’s List pagemarker as a reminder of our appreciation for your investment in Central and will be invited to be our guest to Central’s academic events.
Academic Dean Robert E. Johnson began enlisting friends to be on his “List” at Commencement 2009, during which he was officially installed at Central’s Academic Dean.
