Join us in a shared space designed to help get back to working on purpose. It’s time to slow down and remember why you started your work in the first place. We are welcomed by the congregation of an historic church located in the vibrant heart of Dallas.

Rev. Dr. Ken G. Crawford came to Central with experience serving in pastoral and nonprofit settings. His work includes life coaching and spiritual direction, offered in the congregation and as a ministry in the community. Ken and his wife Laura (an English teacher) have two children, Camille and Russell. Ken’s hobbies include sailing at White Rock Lake, swimming, running and cycling, playing guitar, and writing. When he’s not at church, you’ll find him somewhere around Dallas or the Park Cities, at a coffee shop, the gym, or some other hangout.
