    Beginning in 1993, Geoffrey Craig was called by the Lord by the name "Geoffrey Craig benRichard barAbba" (On the Lord calling His children by a new name, See for Example, Deuteronomy 28:9-10; Isaiah 62:2; Hebrews 12:23; 2Corinthians 5:17, 6:16; Ephesians 4:22-24; Revelations 2:17) and given a teaching mission and ministry within the Olde Culdee Church.  (Briefly, the Olde Culdee Church, Ealde Culdee Kirke, was established by Christ Jesus' uncle, St. Joseph of Aramithea, circa 63 A.D., in Glastonbury, England, where this small group of ekklesia has flourished, despite historical persecution, to the present day.  The term Culdee is a Gaelic sound with Aramaic roots signifying "Friends or Servants of the Most High God.")  As a Chaplain of the St. Columcille Chapel fellowship and pastor, Geoffrey Craig devotes a significant amount of his weekly time to the country-wide- teaching of pastors, ministers, priests and rabbis on  non-denominational principles of debt release, suretyship, land redemption, and biblically based, principled living for their churches and congregations.  Geoffrey Craig is also a noted reasearcher and writer on the subject of the ancient Aramaic tongues, being the chosen language of Christ Jesus, with its roots found in the pre Tower of Babel language of Noah and his ancestors in Haran.

    Between the period of 1991 through 1997, Geoffrey Craig developed and conducted extensive nation-wide lectures and seminars on the subject of the Biblical underpinnings of God's dominion, the Seven Noahide laws of the Melchizedek covenant; the Abrahamic Covenant, the Personal Sovereignty as a child of God and sojourner in the Kingdom of Heaven.  From late 1997 thrugh early 1999, Geoffrey Craig was appointed to serve as an Ambassador at Large and Governor of the Bar Association of the Dominion of Melchizedek, an ecclesiastical see and sovereignty, not unlike other orthodox Christian patriarchate sees and the great Holy See of the Vatican.   Geoffrey Craig is a Chaplain and presently holds the Office of High Priest After the Order of Melchizedek of the Olde Culdee Church, and His Successors, a Corporation Sole as well as Abbot of the Melchizedek Order of the Celi De.   In 1997, Geoffrey Craig was inducted into the Order of the Knights of St. John Ecumenical.

    Geoffrey Craig now also serves as General Counsel and Humanitarian Projects Coordinator of the Sacred Order of For God's Children (an entity not related to the Dominion of Melchizedek, nor has Geoffrey been associated with DOM since 1999) which oversees twenty four significant humanitarian programmes throughout the world.   Each programme is designed to steward God's resources and Providence, anonymously (Mathew 6:1-14) throughout the world, where IMF, World Bank and United Nations representatives have identified a need.

    Geoffrey Craig comes from a hockey family.  Beginning skating at two years of age, his father played hockey semi-professionally and was responsible with Ed Snyder and Jack Wolman for establishing the Philadelphia Flyers franchise.  During Geoffrey Craig's youth, his father formed the Philadelphia Little Flyers amateur hockey organization, which still exists today as a farm club organization for east coast, prep schools, colleges and professional teams.  This youth organization was the first of its type in America to be identified with a parent professional hockey team.   Geoffrey Craig is currently a coach of the Austin Ice Bats Pee Wee Traveling Team, to which he gladly devotes extensive time.  In this regard he further offers service to the Hill School, Dartmouth and other educational institutions who request information on promising hockey players who seek admission into these institutions.
