Craig Raisner

Craig Raisner, Ed. D.  A retired music educator and public school administrator, Craig comes to the board with a varied background in United Methodism having served several Central Pennsylvania Churches as Choir Director for youth, adult, and combined community cantata choirs.  In addition, he was a certified Lay Speaker for the Central Pennsylvania United Methodist Conference and has served as chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Summerdale United Methodist Church.  Craig and his wife Leeann Rhoades came to UUCV shortly before being engaged and married.  Here Craig found a church that spoke to his spiritual interests and needs.  The community spirit found within UUCV attracted him while the environmental focus spoke to him in a passionate way.  Needless to say, the professional flavor and quality of the music within the church and the artistic focus found within the congregation made this church the ultimate choice for him to find the kind of worship community that he desired.
