    Discipleship Pastor

He completed the Master of Divinity as well as the Doctor of Ministry programs at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

Duane has been married to his wife Jennifer for twenty-nine years, and they have two grown children, Jonathan and Anna. Duane and Jennifer are both motivated by their love for Jesus and their desire to see people become disciples who make disciples.
