Our Mission

Empower servant leaders to integrate faith into work.

Our History

While serving as senior minister of Highland Park United Methodist Church for 15 years, Mark Craig empowered staff to become leaders in the church. The tradition continues with Rev. Paul Rasmussen as he and his team continue to mobilize servant leaders. With the Mark Craig Leadership Network, Highland Park United Methodist Church is growing a pipeline of strong leaders for the church as well as equipping the leaders in its church to effectively integrate their faith into their work.
