Craig Parrow serves as Executive Director of Operations for One More Child, where he has overseen the growth of the compassion operations from one compassion center in Lakeland to a second compassion center in Bradenton, along with the exponential growth of resource distribution to our programs and local area non-profits. He also leads the team that provides resources to One More Child programs nationally.
Craig graduated from Summit University with a bachelor’s degree in pastoral studies and earned a master of divinity degree in pastoral ministries with an emphasis in discipleship. He was ordained into the gospel ministry in 2000, and in 2019, completed his doctor of ministry in christian leadership from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Before joining One More Child in 2012, Craig served as an associate pastor for over 10 years at churches in Florida and Ohio. Since that time, he has served as our Director of Campus Care for the Joe K. Blanton campus in Lakeland, the campus in Fort Myers, and the Leesburg Emergency Shelter.
Craig and his wife, Renee, reside in Lakeland and have four children: Kacie, Connor, Aidan, Owen, and a son-in-law, Cooper. They enjoy ministering in their local church where Craig serves as an elder.
