 Pastor Doug  has been the Pastor of Crossroads Community Baptist Church since he began the church back on August 8th 1988.  For 29 years now Pastor Doug has been faithfully fulfilling his responsiblility to God and to the members of this unique Southern Baptist Church.

Prior to Pastoring Crossroads, Pastor Doug was Associate Pastor at Verde Heights Baptist Church, where he served for 7 years.  While serving as Associate Pastor he was in charge of music and youth ministries.  He also opened the church's first daycare ministry, which became tremendously successful in its outreach to parents and children.

During his tenure as Associate Pastor  at Verde Heights,  Pastor Doug began biblical studies through Liberty University.  During that time; the church ordained and licensed Pastor Doug to the Gospel ministry.

Pastor Doug was born in Henryetta Oklahoma on April 5th, 1956.  He spent the first 8 years of his life in Midland Texas.  At the age of 8 his family moved to Fresno California where he lived until he was 21 years old.  He graduated Roosevelt HIgh School, and then spent 3 years in College.  Pastor Doug's intent at that stage in his life was to be a music teacher.  Pastor Doug studied the violin and played with several different orchestras, as well as a recognized string quartet.  At the age of 21, pastor Doug moved to Tucson.

Pastor Doug met Jesus Christ at the age of 9 at a little neighborhood church in Fresno Ca.  At the age of 22 Pastor Doug met Cyndi, his wife, while working at Sambo's Resturant in Tucson.  Six months later they were married.  Exactly one year later they  had their first child,  on their first anniversary, (a son ) Douglas Aaron.  Two years later their daughter,  Alisha Danielle, was born.  They have been married for 39 years.

Both Pastor Doug and Cyndi started attending the church they were married in (Verde Heights).  At this church they both recommitted their lives to Jesus Christ and were both baptized together; it was at this  point that God began to lead Pastor Doug and his family down a wonderful journey of ministy work.    He has faithfully  been fulfilling his call to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the southside of Tucson for 29 years.

He has a strong vision for seeing Tucson brought to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and Crossroads Community Church becoming a strong influence for the cause of Christ in our beautiful city.  Some of the greatest influences in Pator Doug's life and ministry have been the Doctrinal teachings of John McArthur, and Charles Stanley,  and and the church growth priciples of Rick Warren.  Some of the men who have been personal infleunces for Christ in his life, have been Neil Crecilious (Deacon) , Jay George (Pastor),  Ron Hart (Pastor)  and many more.

One of Pastor Doug's favorite verses is Revelation 12:11 "They overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of ltheir testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death."
