We are blessed beyond description to have this godly man be our retreat speaker. Craig has been on staff at the Glorieta Christian Writers Conference, the Write-to-Publish Conference, the Colorado Christian Writers Conference and the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference.

Take a look at his Web site to learn more about this wonderful man of God.
