Presbytery of the Cascades

Transitional Executive Presbyter

The Rev. Dr. Brian Craker has called Oregon home for over 25 years, serving as an Interim/Transitional Pastor in POTC since 2008 after 14 years in youth ministry. In 2021, he wrote his doctoral dissertation on the modernization of Transitional Ministry in the PCUSA and has carried that passion and vision into his current role as our Transitional Executive Presbyter. In addition to ministry, Brian is also a business owner and CFO. His wife Alison is a Mental Health Counselor and they have two giants for sons, Tyler and Casey. When not working, you’ll either find Brian on a sports field with his boys, traveling with his wife, working with the latest technology, or smoking all kinds of meats and veggies on his Traeger.
