Mark was born in Missouri where he has lived his entire life. He has watched with appreciation as Central has overcome challenges, such as maintaining relevance in changing times with programs like create.
“I will be fifty soon, and the first half of my life has been spent preparing for the second,” says Mark. “I want to use my bachelor’s degree in religion for something of value for the Kingdom of Heaven. I am grateful for this place, and create will help me better understand and interpret all that has been behind me and all that is ahead.”

Help Central Do Something BOLD!
A Summons to Action for Empowering Women as Leaders
Fall 2014 CBTS in Tennessee
President Marshall is calling for your help. The “stained-glass ceiling” still exists. She is calling for radical transformation of the horizon for women called to leadership in ministry and, although some significant strides have been made, there is further work to do!
Studies of leadership confirm that women have significant capacities to transform institutions when at the helm. Baptist Women in Ministry (CBF) and American Baptist Women in Ministry have been sources of education, advocacy, and networking for women. Yet more must be done, and Central intends to do it.
I am inviting you to recommend the best young women (aged 22-34) in your sphere of influence to become a member of the fall 2014 create cohort at Central Baptist Theological Seminary in Tennessee. – President Molly T. Marshall
Please contact President Marshall firstname.lastname@example.org with your recommendations. Central wants to build a remarkable cohort of women for this new horizon in theological education. Candidates for this highly selective Master of Divinity program will receive a full tuition scholarship, a global immersion experience in Myanmar, and personal coaching from women leaders who have pierced the ceiling.
