     Rev. Dr. Marcia J. Patton

The Rev. Marcia Patton is the first Executive Minister of Evergreen Association of American Baptist Churches, installed in June of 2004. She worked with the organizers of Evergreen Association, a group of churches invited by the American Baptist Churches of Northwest to form a new region. Evergreen Association is unique among American Baptists because it is organized around ethnic caucuses and does its work by consensus. Evergreen is serious about building bridges of relationship among its ethnically diverse churches.

Marcia earned a Ph.D. from Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and a Masters of Divinity and Masters of Arts in Religion from Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary (currently known as Palmer Seminary). She was born in Western Pennsylvania and reared in southeastern Michigan. She earned her Bachelors at Michigan State University.

She served as Associate Minister for churches in Hatboro, Pennsylvania, Salt Lake City, Utah and Somerville New Jersey. She was ordained at First Baptist Church, Salt Lake City, Utah. Marcia served as Associate Executive Minister with the American Baptist Churches of the Northwest for 13 years.
