Rocky Mountain Conference (RMC) administration is please to announce that Craig Carr will replace ministerial director Al Williams, who recently retired.

Pastor Carr is no stranger to the Rocky Mountain Conference, having served the Boulder Church as senior pastor since 2008. Craig graduated from Union College with a major in business administration. He started his career in healthcare, but in 1997 felt God calling him to the pastoral ministry. Craig attended the Theological Seminary at Andrews University to obtain his Master of Divinity. He then pastored churches in Tennessee and Georgia before accepting the call to Boulder.

Craig is completing a Doctor of Ministry degree from Denver Seminary in Littleton, Colorado. He expects to finish in January and graduate next spring. The focus of his research has been on bringing balance to the life of the pastor.

Craig said, “My goal as the ministerial director is to help each pastor  grow personally and professionally. As we grow together, I want to help each pastor develop their own gifts and talents as we seek to see our churches grow.”

RMC president Gary Thurber said, “Craig has the respect of his fellow pastors for his pastoral leadership abilities. He will truly bless our office team as well as the pastors around the conference.”

Craig has been married to his wife, Carisa (Retzer), for 17 years. She teaches 1st and 2nd grades at Vista Ridge Academy. They have two children, Cassie, 14, and Christian, 12, both students at Vista Ridge.
