Dear Caring Friend of Carver,

Will you make a tax-deductible gift to Carver College and help us transform one community after another. You can give on line at or send a check to: Carver College, 3870 Cascade Road SW, Atlanta, GA 30331.

Your support of Carver helped train recent Carver grad Ricky Jones (class of ’14) to become pastor of Greater Elizabeth Baptist Church in Southwest Atlanta and current student Craig Johnson to become pastor of Calvary Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Ellenwood, Georgia, an Atlanta suburb.

Ricky Jones, Carver Graduate, Class of 2014

Ricky Jones is a native of Augusta, Georgia. Like many pastors in the African American community he was called to preach later in life, at age 29 and after serving in the US Army for six years. He obtained a diploma in Accounting from Augusta Technical School and then enrolled at Carver College. While at Carver part-time he went on to become a supervisor at Georgia Power. Since graduating, Ricky has retired from Georgia Power and is now leading the church vocationally.

Craig Johnson, Carver College Student

Craig Johnson is from Richmond, Virginia. He attended Saint Paul’s College in Lawrenceville, Virginia on a football scholarship. After graduation he served as a police officer for seven years and went on to become a detective. In 1990 he graduated from the DEA/FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia and served with the Department of Justice as a DEA agent for 22 years. He was called to preach at age 41 and enrolled at Carver to prepare to become a pastor. On the first Sunday of this month, Craig was installed as the new pastor at Calvary Hill.

In a short period of time, both of them have already had a major impact on entire communities – preaching the gospel, counseling couples, strengthening the young to make wise choices, encouraging seniors, supporting missions and all the many ways pastors lead churches to make a difference for Jesus Christ.

I know you care about the cause of Christ and particularly as we advance biblical and theological education in the African American community. As the Lord’s work here at Carver deepens your support is more urgent. Thanks for helping us impact entire communities by training the Ricky Joneses and the Craig Johnsons for ministry and thanks even more for helping us now train men and women with technical skills for the marketplace combined with a biblical world view. Approximately a third of our annual giving comes in from your generous end of year gifts. Will you donate now? Thanks for helping us!
