Rev. Craig Vincent is a minister and non-profit manager with significant experience as an urban missionary in the context of rescue mission ministry, Christian camping and neighborhood outreach.
After graduating from Fort Wayne Bible College with a BA in Bible and Christian Education, Craig served for 26 years at The City Mission in Cleveland, OH. His various roles in Cleveland included youth ministry, neighborhood outreach, volunteer ministry development and oversight of diverse rescue mission ministries as Chief Program Officer.
For the last 10 years, he has served as a missionary with BCM International in the role of Executive Director for Streamside Camp & Conference Center in the Pocono Mountains. This 150 acre and 260 bed facility was used to reach children through Christian camping programs geared to urban youth and strengthen churches through hosting seasonal retreats.
Craig is an ordained minister and has served the local church in interim pastoral roles.
Craig will be using his rescue mission and non-profit management experience to refine vision and strategy, bring structure to programming, develop staff competency and enhance community engagement. He is looking forward to working with the Bridge Street Mission board and the current team of staff and volunteers to bring “Christ-centered solutions to those in need in Central Wisconsin.”
Craig will be joined in Wisconsin by his wife, Peggy, as well as daughters, Reyna and Robyn. The Vincent’s also have 2 married children and 3 grandchildren living in Pennsylvania.
