Youth Pastor

Craig Barrack

Craig Barrack was raised in Llano until leaving during his senior year of high school.  He lived with church members, starting his faith journey at FBC Llano in 1992.

After moving to Mart, TX, Craig gave his life to Christ in 1992 and surrendered to the ministry the following summer.
