Craig Schafer will be taking up the appointment of Rector of St Mark’s from July 10, 2008. Craig and his wife Julie have been married for 10 years and have two little girls, Emma and Zoe.

Craig has been involved in ministry at Springwood-Winmalee Anglican Churches since the beginning of 2005. His key responsibilities have been pastoring the growing ‘Arvo Church’ congregation that meets on Sunday afternoons, and leading the team that planted Valley Heights Community Church (VHCC) which meets on Sunday mornings in the local Anglican School.

While at Moore College, Craig did student ministry at St John’s, Minchinbury and St Aiden’s, Hurstville Grove. Prior to college, he worked for Accenture as a Management Consultant and Project Manager. Before Emma & Zoe came along, Julie worked as a Primary School Teacher. Both Craig and Julie grew up in South-west Sydney.

To relax, Craig enjoys a mediocre game of tennis or an episode of ‘Iron Chef’.

While they are sad to be leaving Arvo Church and VHCC, the whole family is looking forward to getting to know the people at St Mark’s and the great things that God has planned for the future.
