Meet Ken Crawford Alaska Conference President

After Ken Crawford completed his bachelor of theology degree in 1974 and spent five years in other work, he and wife Colleen moved to St. Lawrence Island, Alaska, in 1979 and helped raise the Savoonga area membership from four to 25 baptized members.

After Ken completed his master's degree, the Crawfords moved to Kodiak, where they experienced the highest per capita baptisms in the North American Division. The Crawfords added children David and Heather to their family while ministering in Alaska.

The Crawfords' ministry led them to New Brunswick and Alberta, Canada, as well as to Meadow Glade Church in Battle Ground, Wash., where membership grew by 45 percent during his tenure.

Crawford also organized the Insitute of Christian Service and developed a Native mission school.

Ken enjoys writing and flying, while Colleen enjoys interior decorating and gardening. David graduated from Walla Walla College where Heather is still enrolled.
