Gordon Craig, Director of Music Ministry

His father was a new believer and Gordon witnessed the change in his life in coming to faith. It was then that he knew he needed Christ in order to live as God intended. He has an Bachelors Degree and a Masters Degree in Choral Conducting, both from the University of Nebraska. You will also see Gordon's wife, Marcia, in the Choir each Sunday. They have three children and five grandchildren.

Anya was born and grew up in Ukraine in a family of collective farmers during the rule of the Soviet Union. Despite her family being Christians, Anya was a communist and atheist in a godless system. After the Soviet Union collapsed, Anya was led to Christ by American missionaries who had come to Ukraine. She then moved to Odessa City and began her journey in Christ as an MTW Editor/Translator and children's ministry volunteer.  She holds a Masters in Education degree. Anya met her American husband, Joe, when he was on a mission trip to Ukraine in 2004.
