About Pastor Doug and his family…
Since March 2014, I’ve been blessed to serve as the Associate Pastor at Woodland Christian Church, in Woodland, WA, using the gifts given to me to serve specifically in the areas of preaching and teaching, counseling, and discipleship. We have served in a few different roles since 2006, internationally, and in our home state of Texas.
I’m so thankful for the blessing of an awesome family. My wife, Jessica (www.jessconnell.com) and I have been married for 16 years (since Oct., 2000.) Our 8 children (Ethan-14, Baxter-12, Maranatha-10, Silas-8, Moses-6, Theo-4, Luke-2, and Fisher – born, 11/2016) remind us every day of God’s blessings, our continual need for God to shape us to be more like Christ, and that we have been adopted as heirs with Christ. My heart is to be a faithful steward with all He has given.
Here at WCC, I am primarily responsible for and blessed to serve in the areas of
- teaching (Sunday School, primarily),
- counseling (marriage & family, plus 1-on-1 discipleship, and other counseling needs),
- training and equipping of home fellowship leaders, and
- coordination of prayer needs and visitation.
- I also preach about 8 times a year, on average.
It is my joy to serve, equip, and strengthen the Body of Christ.
We consider it a great privilege to live alongside and serve the families at Woodland Christian Church.
