Pastor Doug Davis, along with his wife Linda, join us from the Northern Virginia area, where he started an Open Arms Child Developement Center and Christ Community Lutheran Church in Leesburg, Virginia. Pastor Doug and Linda have been married 31 years and have two grown daughters.
Pastor Doug is a second-career pastor coming from a background in sales and sales management. His degree in Forestry Management led him into the forest products industry and sales. Upon completion of his Master of Business degree he was promoted to regional manager of a national window manufacture and subsequently opened his own company for glass replacement and provided warranty servicies for several window manufactures.
In 2002, he answered God's call to enter into the seminary and changed his career path. In June 2006 he completed his course work and graduated with a Master of Divinity from Concordia Seminary St. Louis and was ordained. His previous career and education has given him wide background of knowledge and experience which he now uses to reach out to the community.
Some of his interests are; spending time outdoors with his wife, playing guitar, fishing and hunting (when time permits) and meeting new people. He is always open for a cup of coffee and conversation.
"I see the mission of Messiah Church as following where God leads us in acts of service and to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to individuals, families and the surrounding communities. We have come to add our voice to the Christian faith community in proclaiming the Word of God. I am excited to be called to the Prattville/Millbrook area and do the Lord's work. It is a wonderful area and a great place to start a new ministry."
