Meet Parkwood’s Global Disciple-Making Mobilizer 

Meet David Crane, Parkwood’s Global Disciple-Making Mobilizer. 
David Crane was born in El Paso, Texas and was raised in Cherryville, North Carolina. David is married to his beautiful wife Renee, and they are blessed with three children: Thomas, Zebulon and Mary. Zeb is a writer and lives in Charlotte. Mary is also single and lives in Nashville, Tennessee where she is a Vet-Tech. Thomas and his wife Leslie are serving the gospel internationally, and they have three children: Judah (5), Sofia (2), and Sarah Renee (born Jan 1, 2016).

The purpose of Parkwood is to glorify God by laboring together for the growth of all believers while going with the gospel to all people(s). It is therefore our desire to increase gospel witness and effectiveness in our community and among the nations. To this end, Parkwood’s missions effort is developing into a more focused two-pronged approach: Local Disciple-Making and Global Disciple-Making. Enter David Crane. David will join the Global Disciple-Making office as a mobilizer to offer consultation and guidance from a wealth of knowledge and experience. 

Crane holds degrees from Columbia Bible College and Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary. He pastored Beulah Baptist Church in Virginia before serving with the IMB for more than twenty years. From 1993 to 2015, David and Renee served in Africa, where the Father called tens of thousands to Himself. He has served as a Personalizer and as a teacher at the Kenya Baptist Theological College. Crane was also a strategic leader for East Africa, coaching and supervising field personnel in five countries.

I encourage you to make David and Renee feel a welcomed part of the faith family at Parkwood, and take every opportunity to get to know them. This wonderful couple is a great addition to our leadership as Parkwood seeks to make disciples of all nations, baptizing and teaching everyone that we may present everyone mature in Christ (Matthew 28:18-29, Colossians 1:28).
