Doug has literally spoken his way across the United States. Every imaginable audience from High School and Middle School Conferences, Colleges, Camps, Educators Conferences, Churches, Leadership and Marriage Conferences.
Doug is known for a hilarious and unique take on relationships, goals and faith. For twenty five years Doug has been, not just “a” favorite speaker but “the” favorite.
What makes him unique is that he presents depth at a life-application level. He can turn the corner from comedy, to tears in a simple phrase.
He and his wife Dawn launched Crossroads Farm in rural Michigan as a training and sending organization. Each year they train youth workers who are interested in doing ministry in rural communities. The CRF Training materials are requested by colleges and youth leaders. The ARMS of the Servant Leader may be the most comprehensive volunteer training course on the planet.
CRF's weekly programs attract hundreds of students while their outreach events are among the nations' largest attended, locally sponsored events.
Doug considers it his greatest honor to be the father of three beautiful daughters, Madison, Raegan and Lauren. He and his beautiful wife, enjoy riding bicycles, the outdoors, reading, coffee, music and sports.
