Doug, originally from Canada, joined staff in 1990. He ministered in Watts about 9 years before getting married to Cynthia. They met through the ministry as she was a volunteer while attending Biola University and they got married in 1999 and continued ministering in Watts together.
After ministering a total of 15 years in Watts we moved closer to downtown Los Angeles and our World Impact National office. We are now serving the ministry administratively, Doug is serving at LA property/maintenance manager, church partnerships and volunteer/group coordinator our Los Angeles ministry. Cynthia is a full time mom to our three children, she is also homeschooling the youngest two, Olivia is a freshman in a local charter high school. Cynthia is the West Region prayer coordinator and enjoys being at home so that she can be available for ministry with our neighbors. We are both involved in ministry as a part of the Team Care team
