Today we have Craig Houston visiting with us, and will be teaching us from God’s Word. Craig has served as the pastor of Westside Baptist Church, Bremerton, WA, USA since 2002. Born and raised in Astoria, Oregon, he was privileged to grow up in a fourth generation Christian home. Saved and baptized at an early age, he surrendered to preach the gospel at the age of 19. A graduate of Bayview Baptist Bible Institute and Sound Baptist Bible College, he was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1997 and sent out as a church planter in Oregon the following year. He married his sweetheart, Emily, in 1994 and the Lord has blessed them with fourteen children; Naomi & Lucas Champ, Anna & Derek Hase, Samuel, Daniel, Nathanael, Michael, Julia, Lydia, Abigail, Ezekiel, Selah, Tirzah, Lemuel, and Gabriel and one precious granddaughter, Edith Champ. Pastor Houston has a heart and passion for expository preaching, reaching the lost and restoring the Christian home. He enjoys spending time with his family, reading, and drinking good coffee.
