Craig Rasmussen MKI Group Travel

craigPrior to becoming a part of MKI Group Travel in April 2007, Craig served as a pastor of a small church in Minnesota, and then as a missions consultant with a national missions mobilization and education network.  These connections with the local church and with the international missions community equip him to serve missionary travelers from both perspectives, and also express his conviction that the local church is Christ’s means to reach the world with His Gospel.  With his heart for the church and his passion for missions, Craig seeks to do more than just sell airline tickets.  His desire is to help local church missions leaders achieve “Maximum Kingdom Impact” by leveraging all of their resources – money, time and people – to reach the world for Jesus Christ.

While Craig stands ready to serve your church and your people in any way that he can, his areas of greatest interests are Asia, Unreached Peoples, and children – particularly orphans and victims of trafficking.  As an adoptive dad, he also takes particular pleasure is assisting families with adoption travel.
