Our Founders

Rev. Dr. Carl T Crawford & FIrst Lady Zelma L. Crawford


In 1968, Rev. Carl T Crawford responded to God's call to go forth and plant a church in the South Park community.  With the unwavering support of his wife First Lady Zelma Crawford, Pastor Crawford dedicated the next 47+ years of his life to shepherding God's flock and extending the love of Christ into the community through the ministry of the South Park Church of God.
Although he has gone on to receive his eternal reward ( Sunset April 4, 2016), Pastor Crawford's legacy lives on through the countless lives that were impacted by his enduring labor in God's Kingdom. 
Now affectionately known as "Mother Crawford", The Park is grateful for the continued presence and support of Sis. Crawford- as she truly exemplifies the life of a faithful servant!
