Doug Dougherty

Elder

I grew up in Medina, Ohio in a Christian family. I accepted Christ at the young age of 4 and was baptized when I was 7. Although I am sure I didn’t grasp the complete concept of Jesus paying the price for my sin, I knew that I had done things that were wrong and that I wanted to spend eternity with God. As I grew, we regularly attended church and I was involved in multiple youth ministries and outreach programs which helped to build my faith. I attended Medina Christian Academy and Liberty University. God continued to pursue me, grow and mold me although I didn’t always understand or at times even desire to live as a Christian. Through the years, He has continued to sanctify me. It hasn’t always been easy, but He has always been faithful. I have grown in my love for Him and his people because of all that He has done for me.

I have been married since 1995 and we have two children. God has blessed our family in unimaginable ways. We have been attending Harvest Bible Chapel Cleveland since 2006. I have had the privilege of serving in multiple areas including men’s leader and as an elder. God is at work here. He continues to guide us as leaders and we are anticipating what He will do next.
