CRAIG REES

I am the Lead Pastor of Central Wesleyan Church of Holland, Michigan.

Before moving to Holland, I served as the Lead Pastor of South Tampa Fellowship, a multisite church in Tampa, Florida (2008-14). Common to both the Holland and Tampa churches is a passion for the Gospel and a commitment missional generosity.

Before moving to the USA, I served as Senior Pastor of the International Baptist Church of Hamburg, Germany (2001-2007), an English speaking church, drawing people from over 50 nations reflecting various Christian traditions and socio-economic groups. I held multiple leadership positions with the International Baptist Convention including terms as Vice-President and President.

  • Greatness is found in simply pointing people to Jesus
  • The needs of the world are met, one person at a time, one life at a time.
  • Yes, this world outside is different. But if we truly embrace it, people are for us, not against us.
  • There is no room for condemnation in the church. And if we don't get this right, we will lose this next generation.
