Colin Craft

We are excited to welcome Colin Craft as our Director of Family Ministries beginning August 1. Please plan to join us for worship on August 7 to meet Colin.

Get to Know Colin | My name is Colin Craft. I was born and raised in Irving, Texas, where I and the majority of my family still live. I spent all of my primary and secondary schooling in the Irving school system. I was a big band nerd in high school (my primary instrument was the saxophone!) so please don’t judge me!

After graduating high school, I went off to Abilene where I attended McMurry University. At McMurry, I earned my B.A. in religion with a minor in philosophy and another minor in biblical Greek. I also served the campus in various ways through campus ministries and being a tour guide. I graduated from McMurry in May 2021 and have since returned to Irving.

Currently, I am a second-year student at SMU’s Perkins School of Theology where I am earning my MDiv. I hope to wrap that degree up in the spring of 2024. Once I graduate from Perkins it is my goal to be ordained as an elder within the United Methodist Church and then continue on to doctoral work!

On June 3, I got married to my beautiful and loving wife, Macy, whom I started dating in high school! So for all you young folks, your Hallmark dreams can come true. We are a proud ministry couple and she is currently serving as the Children’s Director at FUMC Arlington. We also own two dogs, Nova and Colton, that I will gladly show pictures of.

I am beyond excited to do ministry with the community of Vista Ridge and I cannot wait to meet y’all very soon!

Colin can be reached at [email protected] beginning August 1.
