Pastor Kurt Kramer grew up in a Christian home and was saved at the age of 16. Upon graduating from high school, he attended Pensacola Christian College where he received a BA in Youth Ministries and MA in Bible Exposition.
While at Pensacola, Kurt met his wife Robyn, and they were married in December of 1997. While serving the Lord in Pensacola, both Kason and Kylie were added to the family.
After working in youth ministry for eleven years at the Campus Church, God moved Kurt out to Arizona to serve as an assistant pastor to Pastor Steve Morris at Sun and Shield Baptist Church in Marana. After two years at Sun and Shield, God led the Kramers to start Open Door Baptist Church in Catalina, AZ on February 14th, 2010.
