Craig Houston

Craig Houston has served as the pastor of Westside Baptist Church since 2002. Born and raised in Astoria, Oregon, he was privileged to grow up in a fourth generation Christian home. Saved and baptized at an early age, he surrendered to preach the gospel at the age of 19. A graduate of Bayview Baptist Bible Institute and Sound Baptist Bible College, he was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1997 and sent out as a church planter in Oregon the following year. He married his sweetheart, Emily, in 1994 and the Lord has blessed them with thirteen children; Naomi, Anna & Derek Hase, Samuel, Daniel, Nathanael, Michael, Julia, Lydia, Abigail, Ezekiel, Selah, Tirzah, and Lemuel.  Pastor Craig has a heart and passion for expository preaching, reaching the lost and restoring the Christian home. He enjoys spending time with his family, reading, and drinking good coffee. His sermons can be found at bibledirectionforlife.com
