Rev. Vincent L. Crouse - Chaplain for Adult and Graduate Studies Division

Rev. Vincent L. Crouse has been named to the newly created position of full-time chaplain for ENC’s Adult and Graduate Studies division.

In his new role, Rev. Crouse will serve in the Office of Spiritual Development and Church Relations, providing pastoral and spiritual care to the students, faculty and staff of the Adult and Graduate Studies division, also known as the LEAD program. He will begin his new position in late September.

“Due to the growth we’ve experienced in the LEAD program, it became clear that there was a need for a full-time chaplain,” said Rev. Dr. Corey MacPherson, vice president for Spiritual Development and Church Relations. “Vince’s pastoral heart and experience, along with his administrative leadership and connections with area churches and social service agencies, make him an ideal chaplain for ENC’s growing Adult and Graduate Studies division.”

A Quincy resident, Rev. Crouse most recently served as assistant district superintendent for the New England District of the Church of the Nazarene. He previously served as pastor at Nazarene churches in Brockton, Danvers and Malden, Mass. as well as in Claremont, NH. He has also served as assistant director/admissions counselor for Malden Hospital’s Psychiatric Institute.

Active in the community, Rev. Crouse has taught English as a Second Language and been involved with both The Open Door, Inc. and Christians United for Renewal and Evangelism. From 1996 to 2006, he was a member of the board of directors for Brockton Neighborhood Health Center, serving as its president from 2001 to 2004.

An alumnus of Eastern Nazarene College, Rev. Crouse received a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Religion from the college in 1982. He went on to receive a master’s degree in Counseling from Northeastern University and a master’s degree in Sacred Theology from Boston University School of Theology.
