Pastor Craig has served as Pastor of Celebration Assembly since February of 2012. He and his wife, Katie have 3 children: Kayleigh , Nathaniel, and Zachary.  They moved to Fond du Lac from Baraboo, Wis. after serving as Youth/Associate Pastor at One Life Assembly of God from 2004-2012.  They also served previously as Youth Pastor at New Life Community Church in Oshkosh, Wis. from 1999-2004. Pastor Craig believes his calling for the ministry came early in his college career, but it took him 3 years before he pursued it fully.

Pastor Craig grew up in West Bend, Wis., and Katie grew up in Liberty, Mo. They met at North Central University in Minneapolis where Pastor Craig graduated in Pastoral Studies in 1999.  He and Katie were married in Kansas City, Mo. in May of 2000.

Pastor Craig enjoys computers, watching classic black and white movies, and playing percussion. He also has a real heart for people in Fond du Lac and an authentic passion to see them grow and develop into godly men and women of Christ.  He believes everyone has an awesome purpose and destiny from God to do great things and to believe in something bigger than themselves. 

We hope to see you come celebrate life with us at Celebration Church anytime and see why this is the place where “everyone is family.”  We will be here waiting for you!    

God is good…
