Last month we hosted Rev. Howard Golden and his family and friends on campus to celebrate his service through a program now known as the Ministry Training Institute. When Rev. Golden began teaching courses in the program almost 60 years ago it was called the “Howard Extension Division,” which was created to expand the base of theological education throughout Alabama. Rev. Golden’s efforts in recent years have focused on offering courses to inmates at prisons in the state, and his ministry has touched hundreds of lives at the Staton and Draper correctional facilities in Elmore County.
The world is better because of Howard Golden.
