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.
Many people connected with CHBC (members or relatives) have served in the U.S. Armed Forces over the years, and we honor them each year on Memorial Day and Veterans’ Day. This is a listing gleaned from various church records of those who have served. If there are additions or corrections, contact John Arnett (email@example.com)
In addition to these there are many from our church who served in the Peace Corps or Americorps and others who were Conscientious Objectors. At the bottom of the list are the names of some of these individuals.
