Craig Howard

Rev. Craig Howard -- Much to his surprise God called him to the ministry and he became a pastor full time in Petersburg, WV in 1981. He has a loving wife, Camille, whom he met in Bible College; a caring, talented son Ryan who is a police officer; and a beautiful daughter Erin who is a high school student. Craig loves the outdoors and working with teenagers, a role he has filled in his community and denomination as a coach and director of various youth ministries for over 30 years. He has taken youth on mission trips all over the world and plans to continue that activity well into his retirement someday. Craig has always loved theater and has worked with actors in one form or another since his high school days. He understands that words are a tool that when used properly, can encourage and uplift. As God gives him a story he tries to wrap it in words that will do just that.
