Reverend Dr. Robert Wayne Crummie, Sr.


Rev. Robert Crummie is the fourth child of the late Edwin and Doris Crummie and a native of Washington, D.C. He graduated with a B.S. in Economics/Business Administration from Benedict College and with a Master of Theology degree from Dallas Theological Seminary (where he served as president of his class and recently was invited on their Board of Trustees).  

He has been awarded the Honorary Doctor’s Degree from the Denver Institute of Urban Studies in Denver, Colorado and is in the final stage of completing his Doctorate of Ministry at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

After serving as a Grants Management Specialist at The National Institutes of Health (NIH) he did a four-year stint as a missionary with CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ).

Rev. Crummie accepted the invitation to serve as the Vice President of Carver College in September 1996 and in May 2000, the Carver Board of Trustees elected him the fifth president of the college. 

Rev. Crummie was licensed to preach by Dr. David Durham at Mount Sinai Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. and ordained to the gospel ministry by Dr. Tony Evans at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Texas. 

In 1998 Rev. Crummie was elected pastor of the Mount Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, in College Park, Georgia. His vision for Mount Calvary is to, “grow the church, to glorify God.” A vision that continues to bear much fruit for the Kingdom.


Rev. Crummie is married to the lovely Carla Michelle Crummie, an educator and philanthropy counselor. They have one son, Robert Wayne, II and one daughter, Meagan Michelle.

His life vision is simply to go to heaven and take as many people with him as possible!
