Craig Thighe

Associate Pastor

Pastor Craig is passionate about sharing the Gospel and serving the local church and community. The life changing message of the Gospel transformed Craig’s life and he loves discipling others in their journey with Christ. Craig grew up south of Denver and has spent the last 20 years in the aviation industry, both as a professional pilot and in a variety of leadership roles. Through his work in aviation, Craig experienced first hand the powerful truth that God works in and through us regardless of vocation (or location!)

In December of 2019 Craig received his ministry calling and began the transition into vocational ministry work.  His love of Jesus, service, people and community are the foundations of his ministry at St. James. Craig’s personal walk with Christ has taught him the importance of loving one another – unconditionally, in all our brokenness – a tenet that underpins his commitment to inclusive, intergenerational worship, with arms and hearts wide open.

Craig holds a Bachelor of Science from Utah Valley University, a Master of Business Administration from Colorado State University, and a Master of Divinity from Denver Seminary.

Craig and his wife Kristin are the proud parents of five children, they enjoy camping, kayaking, hiking, skiing and all the outdoor activities Colorado provides!

“A new command I give you: Love one another as I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” – John 13:34-35
