Pastor Wm. Douglas Duble
Pastor Wm. Douglas Duble has been a member of Judah Christian Community, formerly Christian Community Church East, since it's beginning in 1981 and he has been a pastor since 2003. Before becoming a pastor, Doug and his wife, Kathy and their two sons David and Daniel, served as missionaries in Kenya (East Africa) and Saratov (Russia). Their work in Kenya included teaching at a Bible School and leading and teaching in worship seminars and conferences. In 1995, Pastor Doug led a short term mission team made up of Kenyans and Americans to Saratov, Russia, where they conducted evangelistic crusades and started a church. After 1 year, the Duble family relocated to Saratov to pastor and continue the work in the newly established church. In 1998 the family returned to the United States where Doug resumed his former position as a salesman.
In February 2003, Doug was ordained the Senior Pastor of Christian Community Church East. He led the church (a predominately white church) to successfully merge with Judah Christian Ministries (a predominately black church). Pastor Doug now serves as the Worship Pastor, Pastor of Global Missions, and the Pastor of Life Groups at the newly-formed, Judah Christian Community.
Pastor Doug has a B.S. in Education from Baylor University and an Associates Degree in Biblical Studies from The International School of Ministry & Vision University. He has also graduated from The Perspectives Class on Missions. He has a tremendous passion for global missions, worship and evangelism. He also enjoys swimming and long distance bike riding. His wife, Kathy, is a school teacher at Madison Christian School.
