Craig Snow currently serves Hope Force as the director of their work in the area around War, West Virginia, in one of the poorest counties in the US. Previously he directed their efforts to bring Christ’s healing to the community of east Biloxi, MS, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The work in West Virginia primarily serves the elderly, handicapped individuals and single mothers. Craig & Beckie now live in Nashville. When disaster strikes (hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes), anywhere around the world, Craig will also be a first responder who lays the groundwork for more volunteers to come and serve. Most recently he responded to the flooding in Vermont following Hurricane Irene. For more information see www.hopeforce.org
History: WPC has a long and close history with the Snow family. We first began supporting them in 1993 when Craig served as director of Mother’s Choice Christian orphanage (Youth With a Mission) in Hong Kong. Sharon Bradbury had worked alongside Craig and recommended him to us. We continued to support this family as they served with Mercy Ships, first on board the Caribbean Mercy and then at the headquarters in Tyler, TX. Craig made the transition to Hope Force in 2006 in order to see through his sense of call to rebuilding in Biloxi. He hosted six mission teams from WPC for Operation Rebuild and now 3 high school teams in West Virginia. Craig has preached in our church and spoken at our men’s retreat. Craig and Beckie have 4 grown children.
