OUR PASTOR & FIRST LADY

REV. KENNY CRAIG & CORRIE CRAIG

Union Missionary Baptist Church (UMBC) welcomed Pastor-Elect, Reverend Kenny Craig, his wife Corrie and family in March of 2023.

Pastor Craig’s greatest love is preaching and teaching in the church and community. He believes you cannot live in a community and not give back to it.
