Pastor Doug started an evangelistic and discipleship ministry called Made To Fish (MadeToFish.com) in 2007. The purpose of MadeToFish is to proclaim the gospel to a lost and dying world, to teach the foundation of our faith that God is Creator of all things and that He made everything in six literal days like the Bible says, to train up workers to be a witness of Jesus Christ, to make disciples, to equip the church, but most of all, to glorify the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
Pastor Doug's personal mission is to "Grow and help others grow in the Gospel!"
The purpose statement of our church is to "Love God, grow together, and reach others!"
MadeToFish involves preaching the Word, teaching the Bible, Biblical counseling, equipping the church for ministry, witnessing to people one-on-one or in small groups, or passing out gospel tracts, as well as doing weddings, funerals, visitation, worship services, leading small groups, leading outreach projects, the sacraments, counseling, and training for ministry.
MadeToFish would not be possible without the support of Pastor Doug's wife and church. Thanks for your love and support!
