Inspiring among all peoples an overflowing joy in God through Jesus Christ

Position & Ministry Description:  Elder, Liaison between the Deacons and Elders, member of the GO Team, and Champion of Men's Discipleship.

Doug's Vision: "To inspire among all peoples an overflowing joy in GOD through Jesus Christ." Doug wants everyone to understand that God has designed us to passionately pursue our joy, and it is clear in Scripture that to maximize our joy it must climax in and at God. Therefore Doug cherishes 1 Corinthians 10:31, "Whether I eat or drink or whatever I do, I do all to the glory of God." Doug calls God’s church to joyfully magnify His Name by treasuring Him above all else and by calling others to do the same!

Favorite Quote:  Doug's favorite quote is from John Piper "God is most glorified in me when I am most satisfied in Him."

Church History:  Doug has been a part of Neighborhood Church since 1986.

Ministry Experience & Education:  Doug graduated from Chico State University with a Business Administration Degree. Doug spent one year at Simpson Bible College and has been on numerous missions-related trips throughout the world.
