Craig inspires a fresh faith for Christians who are tired of impractical formulas and religious rhetoric. He is a husband, father and is passionate to see many receive the love and freedom of Christ and to ensure their faith in Jesus lasts a lifetime. Craig Springer was a Lead Pastor at a campus of Willow Creek Community Church, one of the world’s most influential churches based in Chicagoland. Craig and his wife Sarah along with their two children and sweet little beagle moved to Denver where Craig was a Teaching Pastor at Cherry Hills Community Church, Outreach Magazine’s fastest growing church in America in 2014. While leading at both churches, Craig started Alpha and discovered it to be just as Pastor and Author Rick Warren has said, “Alpha is one of the most effective evangelism tools for the 21st century.” With over 24 million global participants having gone through Alpha, Craig saw this as an unparalleled engine for spiritual renewal within the North American church and became the Alpha U.S.A. Executive Director in November 2016.
