Steve Crawford started at TMC in 2004 with the goal of graduating with a degree in political studies and then attending law school to become an attorney. But taking Methods of Biblical Change in the spring of 2005 with Dr. Stuart Scott caused him to start praying about full-time vocational ministry instead. After participating in IBEX in the fall of 2007, Crawford was confident that seminary, not law school, was the path the Lord had for him.
While at TMC, Crawford met Anna, and they soon began serving together in Grace Community Church’s junior high ministry. They both realized they had a shared passion for ministering to youth, and when Crawford graduated from The Master’s Seminary in 2017, the Lord led them to Grace Bible Church of Hutchinson, Kansas, where Crawford has served as the youth pastor for the past six years, preaching twice a week and discipling junior high and high school students.
Crawford reflects back on all his experiences at TMC, both as a student (2004-2008) and a staff member (2008-2015), and sees how the Lord has used TMC to train and equip him for ministry. Everything from learning how to articulate one’s convictions in Dr. Gregg Frazer’s government and philosophy classes, to giving daily campus tours as part of the admissions office staff, to planning events as a member of ASB, to learning personally from godly professors such as Dr. Bob Somerville, Dr. Brian Morley, Prof. Jim Owen, Dr. John Street, and Dr. Abner Chou — all of it has helped immensely in pastoral ministry.
The Crawfords ask that you would pray for them as they seek to faithfully serve at Grace Bible Church, which has become such a precious home church for them. Prayerfully, Steve will be transitioning out of youth ministry to an associate pastor role at the same church in the next few months. They also ask that you would pray for them as they get adjusted to life with their fifth baby, Benjamin, who was born in early March of this year.
