Doug came to know and love Christ as a boy watching his Grandmother teach Sunday School with a felt board at Westwood Community Church in Oregon. He cites his most vibrant time of spiritual growth as the years he was discipled by Pastor Joel MacDonald at Southwood Baptist Church in New Jersey. In 2007 Doug, his wife Georgina, and their two children joined Alderwood Community Church upon moving to Mill Creek. In addition to serving as an Elder, Doug leads a Life Group and is involved in Men’s Ministry. He cares deeply about fathers taking their faith beyond Sunday mornings and showing spiritual leadership in daily family life. Doug has lived in 10 states thanks to an Air Force upbringing and is now firmly rooted in Washington where his father and grandfather were born. He is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy and the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania.
