Welcome to the online home of Pine Tree Ministries. My name is Karl Crawford and I chose Pine Tree Ministries because it is a combination of my physical and spiritual heritage. I was born and raised on a piece of property known as The Pines Nursery.
Having worked in cemeteries since the age of 12, I have met with thousands of families over the years and have been an observer of their passage through grief. I have also been present as family members have passed from this life to the next and experienced grief first hand.
No human is an expert on your grief, but our Loving Heavenly Father is – and He keeps His promise to never leave us nor forsake us – even to the grave and beyond. I ask you to join me, to participate, to discuss, that we may grow together in our knowledge of the Lord and His desire to work in us and through us.
