West Sand Lake Community Church Welcomes Pastor Andy Craig

West Sand Lake Community Church is pleased to announce the arrival of our new pastor, Andy Craig.

Pastor Andy and his wife Priscilla both grew up in small towns in the northeast: Andy in Cazenovia, NY, and Priscilla in Ipswich, MA. Andy has a B.S. in aerospace engineering from Syracuse University and worked in the aerospace industry in Palmdale, CA, for several years. After seeing the importance of the local church and the need for a commitment to teaching based on the sufficiency and inerrancy of God’s Word, he pursued a Master of Divinity from The Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, CA. Following his seminary graduation in 2011, he served as an Associate Pastor of Christian Education at Eastridge Baptist Church in Kent, WA.

Pastor Andy will join the ministry at WSLCC in September. A potluck will be held after the service on the 8th to welcome Andy and his family. Andy will begin preaching on the 15th. For more information about our church, visit us online at
