Martha Minardi, Ph.D., M.Div/RE
Ministry Program Advisor
I am the Ministry Program Advisor and an advisor for the Liberal Studies Program. I also teach the Liberal Studies Cooperative Experience course as well as classes in the School of Religion. I completed my undergraduate work at Baylor University, and I earned an MDiv/RE and Ph.D. from Southern Seminary.
After seminary, I served as the Minister of Education at Crievewood Baptist Church in Nashville, Tennessee for sixteen years. While I was at Crievewood, I began teaching as an adjunct in the School of Religion at Belmont University. In the summer of 2005, I came to Belmont’s University College as the Ministry Program Advisor and a Liberal Studies advisor.
In both of these capacities, I have been privileged to meet and get to know students from various academic and religious experiences. The best part of my job is getting to know the students and their families, as well as seeing the student’s excitement regarding how God has gifted them for ministry. It is also a joy to see students realize their dream of finishing their degree.
My life apart from Belmont includes spending time with my husband Ray and our son, Kyle. I also volunteer at Crievewood Baptist Church as the Senior Adult Division director.
