Rev. Maxine Gough is an Associate Minister and the Minister of Education. She was ordained at Cornwallis Street Baptist Church on November 19, 2005.
A native of Nova Scotia, Maxine accepted the call to ministry after retiring from a 34-year teaching career in East Preston and Dartmouth. Not only does she hold teaching credentials, she earned a Master of Divinity degree from Acadia Divinity College in 2004. With technical assistance provided by the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and the rehabilitation department of the Dept. of Education, Rev. Maxine was able to accomplish this work despite being stricken with blindness in her adult life.
She stands amazed and thankful for the people and support that our Lord Jesus has brought to her assistance for this new journey as one who ministers in the word. Rev. Maxine is the first minister ordained in Cornwallis Street Baptist Church since 1880.
