Craig was employed as an astronautical engineer at Ball Aerospace for over 30 years. He earned his bachelors degree from Taylor University in Upland, Indiana and his masters degree from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. He was a current student of North American Theological Seminary in their Master’s of Divinity program.
