Kraig was born in California, to parents who were United States church planters. They planted churches in California and in Houston, Texas, where Kraig lived from the age of five until he graduated from high school.
He attended Summit University (formerly Baptist Bible College of PA) for four years, where he married Anne in 1993. He felt the call of God to work with teenagers in public education, so Kraig and Anne moved to Florida and continued his education to become a teacher and football coach at Florida Gulf Coast University.
He spent the next ten years in public education as a teacher, counselor and high-school vice principle, as well as a football coach. They lived in Florida, Missouri, Arizona, and Iowa. During that time, he worked with local churches in a variety of ministries, leading youth, teaching all ages, leading music, preaching, and coordinating missions and evangelism.
God called him into the pastorate, and he pastored a Baptist church in southern Minnesota for four years, where his study of the Word of God led him to see that he was to obey all of the counsel of God, both Old and New Testaments, and that it was all applicable to their lives. Since leaving the pastorate, Kraig and his wife have been working to support families by writing Torah-based homeschooling curriculum and parenting materials, and they have felt called to promote the establishment of local congregations in areas where Torah-based believers in Yeshua have no local fellowship.
Kraig has seven children, a cat, and a dog, and he loves spending time with his family and going on dates with his wife. He loves having company over to his house, and of course, he is an avid football lover, also enjoying hockey and lacrosse. He enjoys woodworking and interior design, reading and discussing history and military strategy, and best of all, discussing theology for hours at a time.
