Doug has been in church his entire life. At the age of 3 he was an usher, official with the badge and everything. By the age of 13, he knew that ministry was his calling. At Liberty University he earned a Bachelor's of Science in Biblical studies, and started working at First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach (where he met Pastor Richard), as a Technical Director, while working on his Masters of Science in Clinical Counseling at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
He married way above himself to Janan in 2003, had their first child in 2006, and in 2007, moved to Callahan, Florida to work as an Associate Pastor at First Baptist Church of Callahan, where they had their second son in 2009.
The Hodges family joined The Village family in July of 2018 as our Director of Communications.
