They have three beautiful children: Jettison, Braelyn, and Deacon. They have also opened their hearts to a couple of other sweet kids, Sondy and Andrea, who they call their own as well. Doug has served in many different capacities at Grace Life Church including youth leader, deacon, and elder. Doug became the Senior Pastor in 2011. Recently, Pastor Doug has also taken on the role of TrueBridge Team Leader. Doug and Annie’s desire is to serve the Lord wholeheartedly. This includes helping people connect with Jesus and walk out their gifts and callings. When not at church, you will find them tearing up the yard with their kids, inviting people into their home, hunting, fishing, or sitting by a campfire. They desire to live life to its fullest and carefully steward what God has given them.
