From the Gospel Music Workshop of America:
Office of the Executive Vice Chairman
I have just learned of the passing of our beloved board member, Bishop Charles Craig of Detroit, MI, who served the GMWA faithfully as the Vice Chair of the Security, Nurses, and Ushers.
In conversation with Convention Manager Mark Smith, he confirmed that Bishop Craig passed of a massive heart attack this morning at a Detroit Hospital near his home.
On Behalf of Chairman Jamison, the GMWA Board of Directors and staff, I ask that every member and those across the Gospel community who view this information, lift in prayer Bishop’s wife, Wanda Craig, His beloved brother, James Linsey Craig, his family and the members of Craig Memorial Tabernacle where he was Pastor.
