Craig Christina

Senior Pastor

E-Mail:

Pastor Craig came to STBC in the spring of 2009 after serving as Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church, Jackson, TN, for six years. He was born and raised in Corpus Christi, TX, where he lived until attending Baylor University in Waco, TX (BBA 1991) and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY (Master of Divinity 1994 & Ph.D. 2001). Craig has also pastored churches in Indiana, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. He and his wife, Tracy, have a teenage boy and girl. 

Pastor Craig’s ultimate goal for Shiloh Terrace is to maximize the church’s potential by helping it to become the lighthouse God has called it to be. The church’s strategic location (just off of I-30, Hwy. 80, and I-635) means that Shiloh Terrace can have a regional ministry, reaching hundreds of thousands of people on the eastern side of the DFW Metroplex.

The God-given mission of Shiloh Terrace is to be a multi-ethnic community connecting people to Christ by loving, growing, serving, and sharing. As every member of Shiloh Terrace does his/her part in loving God, growing with others in Christ-centered  knowledge and obedience, serving the needs of the church, and sharing salvation, multitudes should be attracted and connected to Jesus.

“It’s not that I want Shiloh Terrace to be a big church. Instead, I know that we serve an awesome God who has big plans for His people. For God wants all men to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4). We cannot allow anyone around us to slip through life without seeing God’s love in action and hearing the truth about Jesus. As we fully submit ourselves to the Lordship of Christ, miracles will continue to happen, and we will see a city, nation, and world connected to Him!” – Pastor Craig

Norberto Palmitano

Minister to Young Adults & Community

E-Mail:

Norberto came to Shiloh Terrace in the summer of 2013.  Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Norberto has been blessed with a beautiful wife, Andrea. Together, they have 4 children. Norberto serves as the Minister to Young Adults and Community Ministries. 

Before Shiloh Terrace brought him to Texas, Norberto was a missionary in El Salvador for 3 years where he founded the “No Mas Violencia / No More Violence” movement that delivers a positive message (and ministry) from God.

We can only do that when we are united as the Church of Christ.” – Norberto
