Apostle Craig’s life of drugs and crime on the streets of Harlem, New York, and his crack cocaine addiction, which almost destroyed his life, have been the catalyst for bringing men off the streets. He works closely with Teen Challenge in New York and Philadelphia, as well as with Pivot Ministry in Connecticut, making referrals for men and women. Receiving a mandate from the Lord, in 2001 he launched a new campaign, “Keepers of the Flame,” consisting of Pastors and ex-drug addicts from various churches who have been saved, delivered and set free. With assistance from the local Police Department, they went into drug-infested neighborhoods, praying and taking the “gospel” to the streets.

Apostle Craig has traveled extensively as an evangelist, with a heavy apostolic anointing, conducting revivals and workshops, and preaching the inexhaustible love of God, with signs and wonders following the word.
