We have a rich history of which we are very proud.
Our history continues to inform us as to where God is moving in our midst presently and it inspires us to move into the future with hope.

This is a chronology of the history of ordination of women in Baptist life, especially with reference to the SBC and the role of Crescent Hill Baptist Church in the movement. Our thanks to Reba Cobb who was present at the beginnings in 1983 and who has preserved much of this history.
Through the years the church benefited greatly by its close connections with the seminary. This is a partial listing of some of the faculty and staff who’ve been a part of the congregation and church community. In recent years the church and seminary have drifted apart ideologically and currently there are no active staff or faculty at Crescent Hill.
Thousands of students at the seminary over the years have attended and enriched the life of the church. And the church (staff and members) have been a blessing to the students and seminary staff. Although the current administration discourages students from attending Crescent Hill about a third of the congregation who actively participate in the activities of the church were once students at the seminary.
