Pastor | Director of Family Formation


Craig was born and raised a “Navy brat” and spent his middle school, high school, and college years in Maine. After graduating from the University of Maine at Orono in 1992, he moved to Orange County, California. It wasn’t until 1994 that he received Christ’s forgiveness, and three days later God opened the door for him to work at the Calvary Chapel Christian Camp.

After graduating from Calvary Chapel Bible College in Twin Peaks in 1996, Craig married his beautiful wife, Kirsti, and they remained on staff there for four years. Then in 2000, God opened the door for him to come on staff at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa as an associate pastor. Since then, God has allowed Craig to lead a home fellowship, teach at the Bible College extension campus and at the School of Worship, among many other pastoral duties. In July of 2009 Craig became the High School Pastor until August of 2015 when he transitioned to the pastor of Family Ministry where he is currently serving

Craig and Kirsti have four girls and one boy. 

On staff since: 1994

Favorite verse: “But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God” Acts 20:24
