Doug’s deepest desire is to glorify God by being fully satisfied with Him. Since coming to Fannin in 1992, he has considered it a privilege to serve the wonderful people of this Church, and to see some of the amazing things God has done. His vision is that he and the people of Fannin increasingly help people become more like Christ. Doug is a graduate of the University of Texas at San Antonio. After earning his bachelors he then went on to earn a Masters of Divinity with Biblical Languages from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and a Doctorate of Ministry from Reformed Theological Seminary. He and his wife Lisa were married in 1988. They have two daughters Taylor and Sydney. When Doug is not at Church he spends time with family, friends, exercising, riding his bicycle, hiking, reading, or building things.

Mark is a Midland native, although he has lived on both the east and west coast. In 1987 Mark graduated from Texas Tech University and worked with statistics in various industries until around 2000. Mark and his wife Dana then moved to the east coast to work as house parents in a group home with teenaged boys. They then moved to North Carolina so he could attend seminary and they continued to work as house parents, this time with adolescent boys. In 2005, they moved to Midland to work as the children’s and preschool minister here at Fannin. Mark and his wife Dana have two children, Jake and Marcie. Mark’s ministry goal is to have families that learn and grow together. To think that the church can teach our children, our teenagers, and ourselves how to follow Christ in a few hours a week is foolish. What the church can do is give families the tools to do this teaching in the home and partner with them in these efforts. This is my goal.
