Columbia International University alumnus The Rev. George Crow is a recipient of one of South Carolina’s highest honors. Crow, who earned a Master of Divinity degree from CIU in 1979, was presented with the Order of the Silver Crescent for his 40 years of pastoral service at Northeast Presbyterian Church in Columbia.

The award is the state’s highest civilian honor “for significant contributions, leadership, volunteerism, and lifelong influence within a region or community.”

After graduating from Columbia Biblical Seminary at CIU, Crow was called to serve in the organization of Northeast Presbyterian Church (PCA). He oversaw four decades of church growth, the planting of new churches, broad support of stateside and overseas missions and outreach, recognized year-round children’s programs, and vibrant women’s and men’s ministries programs both of which have led and coordinated efforts with other churches in the Columbia area.
