Doug Elders - Senior Pastor
Pastor Doug and his wife, Kay Lynn, were married in 1984. They have two grown sons and the best two grandchildren ever! He transitioned to pastoral ministry in 1995 after an 8-year career as a chemical/environmental engineer. He earned Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, MO. Prior to coming to Fairfield Glade he served as the senior pastor in a church in Wyoming, two churches in Missouri, and as an ESL teacher in Russia. Dr. Elders serves on the mission field whenever he gets the opportunity. He encourages the church’s involvement in hands-on ministry and missions. Those are frequent themes in his preaching and teaching. That includes leading the church to leave the comforts of its own surroundings to serve locally and globally in an Acts 1:8 way.
Doug and Kay Lynn enjoy hiking, visiting National Parks, and meeting bears (well, maybe not so much meeting bears!) Doug also enjoys hunting, fishing and playing basketball.
