Craig Lile is our Senior Pastor. Having been born and raised in Wichita Falls his family joined Faith Baptist in his teen years. Under strong mentoring he began serving in youth ministry while attending college. At the age of 21 he was presented by the church’s search committee to fill the temporary youth intern position, where one year later he was presented and voted to become Minister of Youth, where he served for 11 years. While serving at Faith, Craig and Robin met and were married in 1987. Craig left Wichita Falls for his first pastorate in Oklahoma, followed by a second pastorate in Texas. After 16 years away, the Faith Baptist search committee circled back to Craig and Robin, and he was voted in 2009 to become their senior pastor. Craig and Robin have three grown children whose families are active in Faith Baptist: Charity (and her husband, Jeremy), Susanna (and her husband, Josh), and Micaiah (and his wife, Christine). They have four grandchildren they adore: Titus, Landry, Eden and Carsyn. Craig holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Midwestern State University and an Advanced Diploma of Christian Studies from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary/Southern Baptist Convention. In his ministry spanning almost four decades Pastor Craig has developed a special love for the Scriptures, especially in the areas of expository preaching, teaching, equipping, mentoring and counseling.
