Bryan Craddock


As Pastor of Calvary East, Bryan takes the lead in guiding us to fulfill our mission to make disciples (Matt 28:18-20). Each week he devotes much of his time to studying the Bible so that he can present God’s truth in a way that is clear and compelling. God prepared him for this role through his studies at the Master’s College and Seminary (B.A. and M.Div.) and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (D.Min.) and through his experience as an intern at Grace Community Church and as an associate pastor at Calvary Bible Church. He and his wife, Shari, live in Comstock Township with their three children.
