While a student at Moody Bible Institute, Craig volunteered with the youth ministry at Calvary Memorial Church of Oak Park, Illinois. In 1999 he did an internship with their junior high ministry and then became the Pastor of Student Ministries in 2001.
During his time as a youth pastor, Craig was able to see many young people trust Christ and grow in their faith. In spite of the fruitfulness of his youth ministry, Craig began to sense that God was calling and leading him to work with college students on a campus setting.
After much prayer and consideration, Craig decided the ministry opportunities offered by Campus Ambassadors seemed to best fit his gifts and desires.
In the spring of 2007 Missions Door appointed Craig as a Campus Minister at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon.
Craig was born and raised in the Midwest, living in both Iowa and Michigan. Since his dad was a pastor, Craig was very familiar with the basics of Christianity and at the age of four he decided to put his trust in Jesus as his Savior. As a teenager he came to realize God had called him to ministry.
Megan, who also was a pastor’s kid, grew up in Portland, Oregon. Like Craig, she was very familiar with the Gospel early on and at the age of four she put her trust in Jesus as her Savior.
Megan grew up being very involved in her dad’s youth ministry and during her teenage years she sensed God calling her to ministry.
Craig and Megan met at Moody Bible Institute and were married in 2001. They have four children: Kyler, Madelyn, Nora and Jackson.
