Doug and his wife, Julie, share a home in Rochester, New Hampshire. They have one son, Doug Jr. (aka DJ), and a granddaughter Lilyanna Grace Berrill.
He came to Christ "late" in his life, at the age of 40 years old. He says that he is "living proof that God never gives up on us!" Since becoming a Christian and member of the Seventh-day Adventist church he has been asked to serve in a variety of positions. These include Deacon, Elder, and Head Elder. In 2014 he attended and graduated from the Northeast Evangelism Training School, NETS. This was a four month in house training program that was held at the former Atlantic Union College. Through this program he was certified in both public and personal evangelism. In addition to serving as the Northern New England Conference Men’s Ministry Steward, he is also a member of the leadership team for the conference prayer ministry. And serves as a member of the evangelism committee for our conference.
At the very beginning of his walk with Christ he was invited to attend some conference wide Men’s Ministry events. These included the spring rallies and annual retreats at Camp Lawroweld. He quickly made friends with other men throughout our conference realizing that we all have had and are having similar experiences.
Doug says, "I truly believe that men’s ministry has and is a huge part of my walk with Christ. It is my desire to share that experience with the men of our conference. God has a special mission for men. A mission as sons, husbands, fathers & grandfathers. A mission as spiritual leaders in our homes, in our churches, places of employment, and our communities! My prayer is that all men will come to a living and loving relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ!"
