Celebrating Pastor Craig 11.14.19

Craig Baldacci is a man after God’s own heart, he is a dangerous man for the Lord and the Gospel, and he is passionate about people, life, the church and the next generation. I first met Craig some years ago when he had first arrived at North Sub, on a Friday afternoon with my grandson. I wanted to show Jadon North Sub Church that I had been the youth pastor at in the late 70s and early 1980s. As we walked in, we were warmly greeted by Craig who not only engaged me but had a great conversation with Jadon and then Jadon and I prayed over Craig and for his new ministry there. It was a wonderful start to our friendship and partnership. Craig was a part of the disciple making cohort at the national office of the EFCA. He was such a good thinker and practitioner of helping people follow hard after Jesus and making disciples who make disciples.
Craig, I look forward to some fishing and golf games in the future and I thank you so much for the signature of Jesus that you have given to North Sub over these recent years. I celebrate the fact that you are a man full of Jesus and full of life and I count it a privilege to be your friend and co-laborer in the gospel.
Love In His Love, Rev. Fritz Dale, former youth pastor at North Sub., 1977 to 1983 and retired director of Leadership Formation and Prayer Mobilization for the Evangelical Free Church of America.
