Pastor Chad Crawford has been our pastor since 2012; leading and providing solid biblical teaching, preaching, and counsel every step of the way. Before coming to Harvest Baptist Church, Chad served as Assistant Pastor in Gainesville, Georgia. His previous ministries also include being a youth pastor in Dallas, Texas, and an assistant/interim pastor in Twin Falls, Idaho.
Chad graduated from Pensacola Christian College with his undergraduate in Biblical Studies in 1998. He continued his studies and graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Bible Exposition at Pensacola Theological Seminary in 2000. It was during this time that he met his wife Karen. They were married shortly after he graduated with his master’s degree. Chad continued working for the college while Karen finished her degree in Biblical Studies. They also welcomed their first child during this time. Since then, God has led the Crawfords across the country and back and added to the Crawford family all along the way. They are blessed with 7 beautiful children (5 girls and 2 boys), who enjoy serving along side their parents at Harvest.
The Crawfords have a heart to serve and love on the people of Harvest Baptist Church and to reach the surrounding community with that same love and service.
