Born and raised in Connecticut, Craig sensed a call to ministry in New England while attending a youth conference as a teenager and has never looked back. Now 15 years into full-time ministry at Walnut Hill after graduating from Wheaton College with a degree in biblical and theological studies, Craig has served as middle school youth pastor and high school pastor, and then oversaw all ministry areas from birth through young adults. He earned his Masters of Transformational Leadership from Bethel Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota, and was subsequently ordained.
Craig and his family moved an hour away in 2010 to Waterbury, where he became the campus pastor for Walnut Hill’s first satellite. He has been a part of the leadership responsible for developing and overseeing the four campuses launched since 2010, with three campus pastors reporting to him now. He also oversees the youth department and its staff, and has played a vital role in the fundraising and leadership development for the church.
