“I served as pastor of Hosman Baptist Church from June, 1982, to March, 1987, when I accepted the call to pastor at Miami Shores Baptist Church, beginning on March 27, 1987. The people here at Miami Shores have taught me a great deal about loving one another and about the call of Jesus Christ to serve others. I can’t imagine a more caring, giving, friendlier and accepting church than what I have found here. Especially gratifying is the privilege of working together with a marvelously talented staff that always put self aside for the greater good of the church” – Pastor Doug
