Doug graduated cum laude from Colby College ’86 in Waterville, Maine where he double majored in American Studies and History and Boston University School of Theology ’89 (Master of Divinity in Biblical and Historical Studies).

He earned his Doctor of Ministry degree in Preaching from Northern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1999. Doug’s primary ministry interests are preaching, leadership, equipping people to discover and use their spiritual gifts in ministry, spiritual formation, and making disciples.

Several themes at the core of Doug’s philosophy of ministry are sharing God’s love, grace, and mercy and the joy we have in Jesus while serving God and others.
