Doug Wright - Deacon Chairman
Doug and his wife Theresa were part of the Bethany Community Church plant and have lived in Washington since 2007. They were married in 1981. Unable to have children of their own, God has given them both a heart for discipleship, particularly for our youth, where both joyfully serve as small group leaders with high school students, and where Doug also teaches. Doug also serves as a Deacon Chairman at BCC, and as President the Board of a classical Christian school in Wheaton. He received his undergraduate degree in business from Washington State University in 1980, where he and Theresa met as students. Doug received a Masters in Apologetics in 2017 from Southern Evangelical Seminary. He and Theresa are involved in the care group ministry as leaders. Both came to their saving faith in Jesus Christ at age forty-five.
