Meet Craig Stephens

Craig has been the pastor of Burgessville Baptist Church for 3 years. Public speaking and people helping roles have been part of his life for most of the past 20 years. His professional and compassionate approach will hopefully help to put you at ease. He would be honoured to meet you and to have the opportunity to assist you, as an officiant, in your special ceremony.

Foster parenting, mostly teenagers, with his wife Beth Anne has been part of his life for over 10 years. They have three wonderful cats, all with different unique fur patterns and even more unique personalities. Craig has worked supporting a person with autism for over a decade.

Craig enjoys getting outside for walks, going swimming and visiting museums when the lockdown conditions allow. On quiet evenings, he will put on a vinyl record and either read a book, write in a journal or catch up on Facebook.

Craig grew up in Tillsonburg, Ontario and, after spending a few years travelling Canada, lived in the Waterloo region for 20 years. Now he’s back in Oxford County with a vengeance, living precisely in the town of Ingersoll and at your service for all of your wedding or funeral officiating needs.
