Degree from Lynchburg College, and his Master's and Doctorate from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.

Dr. Collins undertook 25 voluntary mission trips overseas, preaching on every continent except the Antarctic. He authored a book, "Paul as a Leader", published by Exposition Press in New York, which was a study of the Apostle Paul's role and influence in the field of Christian education. Carl was a former vice president of the Baptist General Association of Virginia. He served two terms as moderator of the Lynchburg Baptist Association, two terms as moderator of the Roanoke Valley Baptist Association, and one term as president of Roanoke Baptist Missionary and Social Union.
