Our Team

Justin Craig

Lead Pastor

While in college in 1999, Justin realized his purpose in God’s Story through the guidance of mentors and the collision of a few divine moments: To plant a church for people far from God in a major city in the United States.

This began a 12 year journey of preparation for Vinings Church. The first seven years, Justin spent leading college ministries in Atlanta and Dallas, TX. The last five years, he served as a church planter in residence at Crossroads Church west of Atlanta.

Justin holds a Master of Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary (2006) and a bachelor degree in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech (2000). He and his wife Elizabeth were married in 2000 and have two sons, Landon and Lincoln, and a daughter named Noelle.

Kurt Reuscher

Production and Technical Director

Being brought up Lutheran in the wide open spaces of Illinois, Kurt always had a deep seated desire to help others. Through everyday acts of kindness, as well as, weekly church attendance, Kurt quickly found his calling to serve. With a mutual love of music and technology, Kurt cemented his spot in the tech booth running sound and production. Looking for opportunity he moved to Atlanta in 2010. Kurt was led to Victory World Church in Norcross,Ga, where he once again made use of his gifts running sound for the worship team.
In 2016 God called Kurt to Vinings, where his career as a construction electrician became as pertinent as his talents in production. God blessed Kurt with the love of his life, Kimberly in 2019. They happily spend their weekends cycling, traveling and enjoying the outdoors along with their kitty Oliver.
