Craig Houser


I was blessed to be raised in a strong Christian home and accept Jesus as my Savior at the age of five.  Life was fun with my three brothers and great home church.  As I grew, God was growing in me a desire for His Word.  My Youth Pastor played a special role in discipling me.  I graduated from Cedarville University studying Youth Ministry, Christian Education and Graphic Design before entering full time ministry.  Over the years God allowed me to serve as a Youth Pastor at my home church, Marketing Communication Specialist at a local bank, Field Missionary with Child Evangelism Fellowship and Youth Pastor in Philadelphia.  Within the first month of marrying my lovely wife Jen in May 2017, God called us to serve here in Spring Hill.


In light of how much it meant to have mentors pour into my life when I was a student, I want to do the same thing for the next generation of students.

Life Verse: Psalm 71:17-18 “O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds.  So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come.”  My favorite passage of Scripture is Philippians 2:1-16.


Best Vacations: My dad’s whole side of the family has been going to South Carolina every year for over 50 years.  We love Litchfield beach and have numerous family traditions there.  Visiting Disney with my family and grandparents as a teen was also amazing. 


Hobbies: I love collecting various genres of Christian music, playing board games, finding great places to eat, playing and watching sports, watching movies and doing graphic design/videography/web design.  Jen loves going out for coffee, enjoying essential oils, and listening to worship music.


Family Traditions: Jen and I enjoy going to the beach, taking walks, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends.
