“For over ten years, I’ve enjoyed the privilege of working with Chris Craft. He serves on our pastoral staff and as an elder for our church. Chris is also a trusted and personal friend.
“Chris excels in whatever he does. He’s particularly gifted in bringing out the best in others through his teaching expertise. Chris has an extraordinary ability to help people identify barriers to growth, then give them tools they need to overcome the problem. I’ve watched him do this countless times with all sorts of people over the years.
“Chris himself is always learning and striving to grow. This natural curiosity and desire keeps him fresh and up-to-date with current ideas and trends. It also keeps his teaching and training materials on the cutting edge.
“I highly recommend Chris to anyone who needs help with personal or professional growth. He functions well one-on-one, in small or large group settings. Chris will certainly prove helpful to you.”
“I have known Chris and his wife Laura for over 10 years and I will gladly endorse his abilities to not only coach and mentor on a personal level, but also to his gifting and knowledge that he shares clearly and effectively when speaking and teaching to groups.
I am the founder and director of My Sister’s Place which is a residential life-recovery program for women that provides shelter, guidance, and love through a structured healing process. We believe in relying on Jesus and the 12 steps for recovery from not only addiction, but other life-controlling issues. Our mission is to rescue hurting women, restore their sense of identity, and return them to their communities as healed individuals.
Over the last several years, Chris has been leading classes on developing character and integrity with the staff and residents. These classes have been an outstanding addition to the program of MSP. The information that is presented is relevant and personable. I am confident that the investment Chris has made over the years has helped many women walk free and realize their full potential, and most importantly, has helped them to become all that God has created them to be.
In addition to My Sister’s Place, Chris is also a trusted speaker for our Living Recovery meetings. Living Recovery is a bible-based 12-step recovery meeting that has been meeting for 19 years at Christian Life Fellowship.
Finally, and most importantly to me, Chris and his wife were positive influences on my children while they were Youth Pastors at Christian Life Fellowship. I am confident that Chris’ influence and teaching played a significant role in the Youth Pastor, Harvard Grad and Children’s pastor who I am blessed to call my children.
I would highly recommend Chris as a speaker and as a coach; if you or your organization are looking for a positive influence in helping to bring about growth, confidence, unity and integrity, Chris Craft will be an excellent source.
If you have any questions, please call.“
“When I met Chris and his wife, Laura, it was at one of the darkest moments of my life. I’d been addicted to drugs and alcohol most of my life and came to a point where I wanted to change.
“I think one of the most important things that Chris and Laura did for me was that they genuinely believed in me. I held on to their belief in me until I could believe in myself. For a long time, I was under the impression that hard and impossible were the same thing. They challenged me with: ‘So you’re clean from substance abuse, now what?’
“The life coaching that I’ve received empowers me to not simply survive, but to thrive. The principles they promote span a broad spectrum. From navigating personality types, to active listening, to goal setting, to the necessity and art of application, I am now equipped with tools to approach life more mindfully.
“Among many outcomes, I have better relationships, I think differently (I seek to understand rather than to be understood). I’m not a victim anymore; I’m a victor and the Crafts have played a significant part in that. I am a better me and it directly impacts my outreach to and interactions with those around me. Through their mentorship, I am cultivating a more abundant life.
“If you’ve reached a “now what” in life, I couldn’t recommend the Crafts more strongly. Hard does not mean impossible. Find out for yourself. I did.“
“Chris’ principle-based approach to teaching provides practical application for my team and my clients. He speaks to matters that are relevant and important to business and to culture; his listeners will walk away with increased knowledge and the tools to apply what is taught.”
“I was at a crossroads in my career. After having been in the same position within my company for almost 15 years, I knew it was time for a change but I couldn’t seem to muster up the courage to apply or interview for another position. I felt overwhelmed and had no idea where to begin or what I wanted to do next. Chris walked me through several exercises that helped me to identify the values and dynamics that I was looking for in a new position that are important to me as a Christian. He helped me to reevaluate my career goals, clarify my long term professional ambitions, and align them with my passions. Chris has a knack for thinking outside of the box and provided me with new perspective, insight and a renewed sense of confidence in my skills and talents.”
“For years before I met Chris, I had trouble developing new relationships and growing current ones. After reading books he recommended and after talking with him, I started seeing changes in my life immediately. I became the supervisor at my job and I strengthened my abilities to interact with anyone I meet.”
