When called upon, he assists in worship, preaches when needed, and provides any other additional pastoral services as requested by the congregation.

Doug’s full-time ministry is to serve as the Chaplain to the Emergency Room, Burn Unit and Trauma Intensive Care Unit at Westchester Medical Center, Valhalla, NY.
