Reaching out to Veterans

Reaching out to Veterans

You are invited to join us on December 3, 2017 as we will have a special guest speaker; retired SGM Doug Carragher.

Dr. Carragher is planning to lead us in a better understanding of how we can serve the men and women who volunteer to serve us on the front lines defending our right to freely declare the gospel of Jesus Christ. Dr. Carragher also will be sharing with us ways in which we as a church may be able to minister to the soldiers, sailors, and airmen who suffer from difficulties from duty.

Doug was born and raised in Connecticut and joined the Army in 1978. He married Deborah Andrews in 1983 in Baltic, CT while serving on recruiting duty. They surrendered to full time Christian service at a revival in 1997 and retired from the Army and entered full time Christian service in 2004.

While on active duty they planted a church stateside and helped an overseas church planter in Europe. They have served as a Sunday school teachers, bus drivers, AWANA commanders, and in many voluntary administrative positions.

In 2002 the Lord called them to serve with Armed Forces Baptist Missions a ministry of Good News Baptist Church in Chesapeake, VA. He became their General Director in 2005. Since becoming the general direct the minister has grown by 700%.

Doug is the founder of Wounded Spirits a ministry to reach those with PTSD. He has authored three books on the subject and leads training worldwide.
