After graduating from Trinity International University, Doug and his wife Carol were married 47 years ago. They have attended Door Creek Church since 2010 when they moved to the Madison area. They have two adult sons, two grandsons and a granddaughter.
Doug and Carol live in DeForest and moved attendance from the Sprecher Campus to the North Campus in February 2011 when North opened. At North Campus they lead a Life Group and assist in communion preparation, coffee service and community development activities.
Since completing his graduate training at Purdue, Doug cheers for the Boilermakers. Other teams he follows are the Chicago Cubs, the Chicago Bears and the Detroit Red Wings. Besides enjoying watching those sports, he is always ready to watch trains and be involved in activities that have to do with railroads.
