Pastor Craig
Senior Pastor, Counseling Ministry

Pastor Craig was born and raised in Salem, Oregon.  He began attending Faith Baptist Church at the invitation of a school friend when he was eleven years old.  Through the Bible teaching of the church he heard and understood the gospel, and God saved him around age 12.  He was baptized and discipled in the church, and developed a desire to serve the Lord in full time ministry.  In 1995 he married his wife Tracy, and the Lord has blessed them with six children, four son / daughter -in-laws, and nine grandchildren.  Craig was called to serve Faith Baptist Church as senior pastor in June of 2009.  He is the primary preaching pastor, and serves in a variety of other ways like teaching, biblical counseling, discipleship, and occasional clearing of clogged plumbing.  His passions include Jesus, the Bible, his wife, his family, this church, plants (except for one particular tree that tried to kill him), animals, tinkering, and general puttering.
