Daniel L. Wolvin


Pastor Wolvin is happy to be labeled a Buckeye. He was born in Ohio, spent most of his childhood in Ohio and has spent his entire ministry serving in two Ohio churches for the past thirty-four years. Upon graduating from Bible college, he was asked to join the staff of his home church, Cleveland Baptist Church, where he served faithfully in many capacities for twenty years.

In March 2002, he accepted the call to pastor North Columbus Baptist Church in Columbus, Ohio. Bro. Wolvin has been faithfully serving the community in our state’s capital for over fourteen years.

Pastor Wolvin and his high school sweetheart, Denise, have been married for thirty-five years. They have been blessed with three sons, all living in the Columbus area, two lovely daughters-in-law and three grandchildren.




Brad Cranston


Brad Cranston was born in Sewickley, PA on December 2, 1962. He accepted Christ as his Savior a few weeks before turning six years old.

In June 1985 Bro. Cranston was married to Heidi Marie Christner at Marion Ave. Baptist Church in Washington, IA. Over the years God has blessed them with eight children: Kristina (Scott Mercer), Brad Jr, (Patricia Murray), Suzanna, Kayla, Tiffany, Emily, Jacob and Joanna.

In the Spring of 1992 the Cranstons moved to Burlington, IA where Bro. Cranston assumed the pastorate of a 16 month old church plant meeting in a rented room at the local community college.  In the fall 1992 the church was chartered and organized as Heritage Baptist Church.

In 2008, sensing the moral and spiritual decline of our political process, Bro. Cranston founded Iowa Baptists for Biblical Values.  Over the years that effort has increased to include a weekly presence of Baptist pastors at the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines and trusted relationships with numerous good and godly Iowa legislators.

In January of 2015 Pastor Cranston and his wife stepped out by faith and joined Dr. Chuck Harding and Awake America Ministries as the Director of the Awake America State Capitol Initiative with the goal of reproducing his Iowa State Capitol efforts in other states.  To date State Capitol Initiatives have been launched in North Carolina, California, Maryland, Colorado, New York, Florida and Ohio.
