Whitesburg calls Darryl Craft as new senior pastor

Darryl Craft will be the new senior pastor of Whitesburg Baptist Church, Huntsville.

A former Alabama Baptist pastor, Craft comes to Whitesburg from Temple Baptist Church in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where he has served as senior pastor since May 2012.

From 2007 to 2012, he was senior pastor at Green Street Baptist Church in High Point, North Carolina. He previously served as pastor at Brainerd Baptist Church, Chattanooga, Tennessee; Shelbyville Mills Baptist Church, Shelbyville, Tennessee; Capshaw Baptist Church, Capshaw, Alabama; and Bushnell Baptist Church, Durant, Oklahoma.

Craft’s father was in the U.S. Army, and his family moved often when he was a child. Craft lived in nine different places prior to his family’s move to Huntsville when he was 14 years old.

Details of Craft’s transition from Hattiesburg to Huntsville will be announced at a later date, Craft told members of Temple Baptist in a letter posted online.

He and his wife, Vicki, have three adult children and three grandchildren. (TAB)
