My name is Craig Douglas Gephart.  I began playing bass guitar in the mid 1970’s, at the age of 15.  As a self-taught player, I spent countless hours learning songs of a number of the most popular bands of the day.   During my college years, I had the opportunity to work with five very talented musicians doing all original music in the Christian fusion band, Second Chance. The experience working with a great group of musicians piqued my interest and led to my subsequent pursuit of similar opportunities.  From 1980-1983 I went on the road as a full-time touring musician with several Christian artists and groups, performing in nearly every state in the continental USA and parts of Canada.

I left the road in the fall of 1983, returned home, and met my wife to be; we married and had two sons.  In the years that followed I have remained active on a regional level.  I served several years as a worship leader at two churches (vocals, acoustic guitar & keyboards) but have worked, primarily, as a bass player with local worship leaders and Christian recording artists, in church services, conferences, coffee houses, recording sessions, and concert venues.  I continue to play throughout south central PA (and, even as far away as Oregon!) when opportunities arise.

Using my talents in the Church has always been near and dear to my heart.  I can typically be found playing at both the Harrisburg Brethren in Christ Church and the Grantham Church most months.  I highly recommend these congregations if you are looking for a church home or are simply curious about stopping by to see where I hang my musical hat on a regular basis.

Thanks for stopping by!
