Craig Jarvis

Lead Pastor of Village Church East

Craig’s ministry focus and passion is that of discipleship and leadership training. A native Canadian, he is known for his animated teaching style and love for communicating biblical truth into life-changing insights for daily Christian living. Craig holds graduate degrees in Bible and communication as well as a Master of Divinity from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. He has been an adjunct professor at Cornerstone University, a keynote speaker at many conferences and retreats, and a leader of dozens of cross-cultural trips for churches and mission agencies. Craig has served as youth pastor for almost a decade and as senior pastor for the last seventeen years. Craig is an avid fly fisherman and golfer but finds his most joyful moments spent with his family. Craig and his wife Beth have been blessed with four beautiful daughters: Abigail, Hannah, Karis and Rebekah.
