Bio

Rev. Floyd L. Crider was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. He finished high school at St. Ignatius College Prep and graduated from college at Northwestern University. Rev. Crider then worked for the federal government for 3 years before enlisting in the United States Army. During his military career, he served two tours of overseas duty and in several installations stateside. He took a VSI retirement in 1992 and went back to school at Angelo State University for a second baccalaureate and a master of education degree in counseling. In addition to being 10 year pastor of Galilee Baptist Church and co-pastor of the Goodfellow AFB Gospel Service as a licensed and ordained minister, he has worked as an educator since January of 1995 in the San Angelo ISD.

Rev. Crider has been involved in community activities since his youth. He began with scouting; moved through fraternity Big Brother, Little Brother programs; and later worked with Masonic organizations, NAACP, and local charitable entities wherever he was located.

Most recently in San Angelo, Rev. Crider has been an active board member with the United Way, Habitat For Humanity, NAACP (Past Pres), Ministerial Alliance (Past Pres.), Right Choices for Youth, the West Texas Organizing Strategy, Success By 6, San Angelo Living Together (SALT), Concerned Citizens of San Angelo, Neighborhood Revitalization Committee, Race Relations Task Force (a mayoral appointment), Shannon Health and Wellness Advisory Board, COOP48 Adult Basic Education Advisory Committee, Christian Women’s Job Corps (CWJC), SAISD Facility Task Force, Area Agency on the Aging’s Faith in Action committee and the Boys and Girls Clubs (San Angelo-Pres.) He has recently been appointed by the mayor to the local Public Housing Authority (PHA). He is also a member of the local Emmaus Community and a monthly Prayer Breakfast group. His main volunteer focus, however, has been with the Galilee Community Development Corporation (GCDC) where he is president emeritus and founder. The mission of this organization includes developing decent, affordable housing for low-moderate income clients. It is a 501c(3) and has recently been recertified as a CHDO (Community Housing Development organization) eligible for HOME program funds from HUD. We have also received a 4.7 million dollar tax credit to construct 36 new affordable rental homes. His future plans include, of course, helping to revitalize low socio-economic status areas making viable neighborhoods out of census tracts.

Rev Crider is married to the former Cheryl D. Jones and they have a blended family of six children.
