She’s shared the stage with such renowned gospel artists as Yolanda Adams, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, and Bobby Jones. Crawford has been ac claimed in Ebony Magazine as “…a vocal powerhouse that is one of the truly great voices of our times!” Crawford, however, hasn’t finished making additions to her list of accolades.

The board of directors at Truth Bible College carefully selects individuals to receive the honorary doctorate. The award is presented to individuals who excel in their field of expertise over an extended period of time. Truth’s mission has been an intrinsic part of Crawford’s own life since she delivered her first sermon at the age of 20, so it’s no surprise that she was selected to receive this honor from this esteemed institution. Crawford, having received this great tribute, now joins the ranks of such respected honorary alumni members of Truth Bible College as internationally acclaimed prophetess and songstress, Juanita Bynum and multi-millionaire business mogul Attorney Willie Gary. Other noted recipients of this distinction include Paul and Jan Crouch, founders of television’s largest Christian broadcasting network, TBN.

Beverly Crawford grew up in Florida and returned to her home state in 2006 to launch the Gainesville Family Life Center, the ministry she founded with her husband, Todd. Crawford has contributed endless efforts to preach the word of God across the world and she won’t stop now.
