Last night Ben Straub reported to Fourth Baptist Church. Ben holds both a M.Div. and a Th.M. from Central Seminary. For the past several years he and his wife Amy have been ministering in Kitwe, Zambia. Ben went to teach at Central Africa Baptist College; he is now the academic dean of the college.
CABC started out offering a bachelor’s degree in Bible. It has subsequently added a master’s degree in ministry and a bachelor’s degree in education. The school is credentialed to certify graduates who teach in Zambian schools. It is also the locus of certification for chaplaincy in the Zambian military and prison systems.
Ben is the son of Jeff Straub and Amy is the daughter of Roy Beacham, both on the faculty of Central Seminary. That’s both effect and cause of the fact that worldwide missions is at the heart of Central Seminary.
