Doug and Barbara married in 1979 and have 6 children, who so far have replenished the earth with twelve grandchildren. The family served at an orphanage in Moscow during 1998-99. Both their sons have been a part of the Massachusetts 1st Alpha Unit. Stephen went on to train with ALERT Basic Training Unit 19, finishing as the senior drill instructor for Unit 26.

Doug began a relationship with Jesus in 1976 and has experienced profound emotional healing. His law practice is now part-time and he is fulfilled in following his passions: deepening his relationship with Jesus and focusing on His return, connecting with each family member and pursuing their fulfillment, and encouraging men to disciple generationally and to prepare for serving and ministering the Gospel to people in crisis in the coming days.
