Pastor Douglas A. Crawford II (PDAC) and his wife, Rose, have 4 children: Sheyenne (19), Ryan (16), Joshua Douglas “JD” (2) and a baby due in February. He has enjoyed serving the Body at CBC since 2005 in a variety of capacities.
Growing up in a ministry family in Rockford, MI, PDAC learned early in life the value of the faith community. Many of his favorite memories revolve around activities either at the church or with people from the church. He loves being with members of the church and hearing their stories from days gone by and celebrating the faithfulness of God to His People.
Because of his experience on the stage in high school and college and being the firstborn of six boisterous children (4 sisters, 1 brother), you will usually hear PDAC before ever seeing him. Whether it is his laugh or normal speaking voice, one never has to look too hard to find him-especially if there are snacks around.
One of PDAC’s great joys in serving the congregation is seeing young people discover ways to partner in the work of the Gospel. As the youth pastor for 12 years at CBC, many of the students from the early years are becoming moms and dads raising up a new generation in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
9 And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, 10 so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:9-11
