Doug has been serving as the Pastor of Outreach Ministries at Woodlands Church in Plover, Wisconsin for the past 12 years. Prior to serving at Woodlands Doug spent almost 17 years in ministry with Intervarsity Christian Fellowship in Illinois. Doug has traveled and served on missions teams to many countries.

He and his wife Jen have been married for 26 years and have three children.  Doug has combined his experience as a property manager in Chicago, his love for missions, and passion for the gospel in his current position in Plover. He enjoys working with the many great lay leaders at Woodlands through a variety of ministries designed to impact our community on a broad yet personal level.  In 2012 Doug worked with a team of leaders from Woodlands and other churches to envision and found TransACT Hope, offering hope to their neighbors committed to improve their lives; connecting them to Christ, affordable housing and community of caring people.   Working with these and other great lay lead ministries fuels Doug’s passion for bringing a clear articulation of the gospel to those who do not yet know Christ.   Along the way Doug enjoys fishing, hunting and when his body permits, running, especially where it allows him to come along side others who are eager to grow in Christ.
