Doug joined WordPartners in 2006 and served many years as the regional director for Africa, where he invested in, shepherded, and coached many pastors and beloved partners who carry on the work there today.
In 2020, Doug was asked to shift the focus of his shepherding to the members of our staff and serve as our Executive Director.
We're so thankful for Doug's skills and his heart in this new role. The Lord has given him a deep love for our team, and we see the Lord using the wisdom He's given Doug to shape the way we carry out our mission, encouraging us to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Doug and his wife, Lynn, were high school sweethearts where they grew up in Pennsylvania. Today they have two grown children, and Doug and Lynn now live in South Florida.
