was born and raised in Kosciusko until he finished college.
He grew up in Second Baptist Church in Kosciusko where he surrendered to the ministry in 1979.
After graduating from Kosciusko High School in 1980 Craig attended and graduated from Holmes Community College. In 1982 he returned to Holmes Community College to further his education. This turned out to be a good move because this is where he met Sue and they started dating. After leaving Holmes he attended Delta State University for 2 years. From college to present Craig served in churches in Attala, Holmes, Leake and Madison counties.
Sue and Craig were married August 10, 1985 at Sue’s Church in Camden, MS.
On March 3, 1993 Craig and Sue were blessed with the birth of their first daughter, Sarah Hope and then soon after on March 9, 1994 they were blessed with the birth of their second child, Olivia Grace.
These births were truly a blessing from God.
Craig served as Minister of Music at First Baptist Church in Ridgeland MS from 1995 until 2000. During this time, Craig and Sue came to the realization that they were lost. They gave their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ in 1996 and were baptized by Pastor Tony Byrd. Craig has been Minister of Music at Old Rice Road Baptist Church since 2000.
