OUR TEAM

  • John Whitten came to Pioneer Drive in the fall of 2003 as a freshman at Hardin-Simmons University. While at HSU, he met his wife, Elya and finished with a degree in Business Management and a Master's of Divinity at Logsdon Seminary. He serves as Lead Pastor for the gathering. He loves to run so that he can eat lots of Mexican food! He is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree and chasing three children—Sam, Sarah Kate and Savannah. Nothing excites John more than people finding hope today and forevermore in Jesus Christ!

  • Craig joined Pioneer Drive in February 2017. As a multi-instrumentalist, Craig has been leading worship in various capacities since he was 18 years old. Craig is a graduate of Dallas Baptist University with a B.S. in Music Business and is a graduate of Hillsong College with a Diploma of Ministry in Worship & Creative Arts. Craig has a passion to lead people into authentic worship with skill and excellence. Craig and his wife Tiffany have been married since 2010 and have two sons, Maddox & Austin. When he’s not playing music, Craig loves traveling, learning new things, and rooting for the Chicago Cubs!
