Personal Information:

After retiring from an eleven-year career in the Canadian Football League in 2001, Dr. Craig Hendrickson spent sixteen years in full-time ministry in Long Beach, CA, Brooklyn, NY, and here in Chicago. His service in church settings included time as an assistant and lead pastor, and as a district leader in the Free Methodist Church. His service in parachurch and campus settings included time as a leadership coach and consultant to urban pastors, leaders, and congregations with Church Resource Ministries, and most recently, as the Athletic Chaplain at North Park University here in Chicago. During that time, he also served as an adjunct professor for Fuller Theological Seminary and North Park University, and as a trainer and leadership partner with the Arrow Leadership Program. His passion is equipping current and future leaders to engage in multicultural and missional ministry, and his research interests center on bringing these distinct disciplines together.
