About Paradigm Shift Ministries
Reimagining and reigniting the local church since 1842
PARADIGM SHIFT | “A CHANGE IN APPROACH OR ASSUMPTIONS”
Paradigm Shift is all about reaching people who are not currently being reached through traditional models of ministry. Our roots stretch back to the Muscular Christianity Movement of the late 1800’s and continue today as we reach out through both community outreach and social media. We call ourselves ‘church on the go’, and we believe the timeless truth of who Jesus is and what He came to do is still vitally important as we live our daily lives. If the Christian faith is a living faith, then what we believe should affect the way we live. Together, we can change this world for the better!
Dustin Craig (Lead Pastor)
Dustin accepted the call to go into ministry at the age of sixteen while he was serving as a student ambassador in Europe. After walking the old battlefields and touring the empty cathedrals, he gave his life over to the biggest cause he could think of – the kingdom of God. Since then, he attended Malone University’s School of Theology and earned his bachelor’s of arts in Youth and Sports Ministry with minors in Sports Management and Coaching. Dustin has also been recognized internationally as a student, athlete and ministry leader. He has worked directly with nearly 300 churches putting together outreach events and his current #630SN video series has been viewed by people in over 80 countries and territories.
