As a teenager, Doug Kraus had very little interest for God or religious things. But after accepting an invitation to visit a church, he heard the Truth about Jesus Christ, and his indifference was soon overpowered by the grace of God.
Bro. Doug became a youth pastor in 1987 & soon joined the staff at the Baptist Tabernacle, serving as a youth pastor here ever since. He studied at Arlington Baptist College.
Doug and his wife Karen live in Franklin. They have four married children and 17 grandchildren and a dog named Murray.
