Kraig Anderson and his family came to PHBC during the blustery snow and cold of January, 2009. Kraig was born in North Dakota but primarily grew up in Minnesota. Kraig has two primary roles at PHBC: 1) Lead, pastor and develop our growing worship arts ministry. 2) Provide leadership and communication with and for PHBC's custodial and office staff, guide the church's day-to-day operations, and serve as a ministry connector for the property, finance, Pastoral and deacon leadership teams.
After graduating with a degree in Music Education from Minnesota State University, Mankato, he began his career in music as a high school band director. After eight years of serving students in public schools in South Dakota and Minnesota, God led him into worship ministries where he served churches in the Minneapolis area and Sioux City, Iowa before arriving here. He had additional music and theological training from the University of Minnesota and Bethel Seminary, gained "coach certification" (leader development) through Coachnet Global and the NAB, and has attended worship conferences in California, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio and South Dakota.
He and his wife Kristin have two fantastic boys: Michael is in high school at North Royalton and Tim is attending the University of Mount Union as a Marketing major. Kristin was Kraig's college sweetheart and they've been married since 1993. She is busily taking care of her three boys (yes, that includes Kraig), has a background in accounting and finance and works as the administrative assistant at Parma Heights Christian Academy.
