Rev. Don Krafft | Senior Pastor
Don and his wife Elizabeth are so happy to be here at MRC!
Don was born and raised in Northern Iowa. He moved to Florida in high school and went to Florida State University where he majored in Music Education with a minor in voice. He met his wonderful wife, Elizabeth, at FSU through Campus Crusade for Christ. They've been married 36 years and have three grown children, Tyler, Bailey and Owen. Don and Elizabeth have been blessed with six grandchildren.
Don went to Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi where he earned an M. Div. (1985). His ministries have included callings in Mississippi, Florida, Missouri and Utah. His passions include preaching, teaching, worship, and evangelism. His hobbies include skiing, reading, hitting the gym, anything outdoors and family time.
We look forward to this time together and pray for great blessings as Mountain Road anticipates its future. - Pastor Don and Elizabeth Krafft
Youth and Young Families Director
Austin was born and raised as a “pastor’s kid” just down the street in Bountiful, Utah. Here, he developed a love for God’s Word, His people, and ministry in Utah. He is glad to call this place home again after a few years out of state. During these years, he attended Sterling College in Sterling, Kansas, for a B.A. in New Testament Biblical Studies and Denver Seminary in Denver, Colorado, to begin work on an M. Div. with an emphasis in Old Testament Biblical Studies, which he is currently continuing. Austin has served in high school and college ministry at two churches in the Bay Area of California. He has also served in children’s ministry and as a youth director while in Denver.
In June of 2013 met his dear wife, Emily, while both were doing mission work at a children’s home in Tijuana, Mexico. He bravely joined the Zumba® Fitness class she was teaching there, and the rest is history. They happily married in July 2016. Emily’s presence in Austin’s life is continual evidence of God’s grace to him.
Austin has a deep passion for studying God’s Word, loving the local church, and doing ministry with Mormons. Outside of ministry and seminary classes, he enjoys cooking, good stories, and active outdoor adventures with Emily. Austin and Emily are so excited to be a part of the Mountain Road family, and they can’t wait to get to know you!
