CHURCH OF GOD MINISTRIES WELCOMES NEW CHIEF ADVANCEMENT OFFICER
Church of God Ministries is pleased to announce Doug Stafford as chief advancement officer. Doug comes to the office with a wealth of experience in nonprofit accounting and fundraising activity, as well as a firsthand knowledge of local church ministry. As a church planter, Doug’s first love is Jesus Christ and his heart is for the local congregation. His assignment carries on the work of Bob Moss, whose role with Project Imagine has greatly expanded in recent months.
A graduate of Indiana University with a degree in accounting, his career took an early shift to the nonprofit sector. His work with planned giving, stewardship services, and executive leadership over the years has touched the efforts of such organizations as the American Red Cross in central Indiana, the Rotary International Foundation, and Water Mission, Inc.—an international ministry to provide safe water in developing countries.
Doug’s combination of experience in church planting and nonprofit organizations position him well for the role at Church of God Ministries. “I think it’s the understanding that we are very unique individuals but, at the same time, fitly joined together,” he explains. “Each of us has strengths and weaknesses; bringing those together, we maximize what we can do as we work toward a common goal.”
A resident of Zionsville, he and his wife Lori are blessed with three children—Christian, Lauren-Hunter, and Carson. His family and ministry are what matter most in his life, as evidenced by what he chooses to do with his free time.
“I still love getting together with my boys and the youth group to play basketball,” he reflects. But he’s also an avid outdoorsman, often lured by the wonder of a quiet mountain stream and a tug at the end of a line. Doug is a steak-and-potatoes kind of guy, with a warm smile and a firm handshake—a gentleman of the highest caliber. The Movement is blessed to have Doug Stafford in leadership at Church of God Ministries.
