Doug Hornberger – Deacon
I lived a typical Midwestern life with my parents loving me very much and teaching me the value of hard work. They passed on to me solid morals that included making sacrifices. We usually went to church together as a family. While my body was there, my heart was not. I felt Church was something we did because that’s what we were supposed to do. As a result of this belief, I was separated from God, and was trying to be my own god, declaring what was right and wrong, and living life by my own standards.
I believed these things until the year 2003 when I began encountering a God who was holy and righteous, but also full of mercy and grace. Through my wife’s example, the prayers of the saints, and the proclamation of the gospel, I began to hate the man I was and began to have new desires. I surrendered my life to Christ and God gave me new a heart. Today, I stand before God a sinner that is declared righteous, by the blood of Jesus Christ, my Savior, my God.
I have been married to Angela since May of 2000 and have been blessed with 4 children. Grace(13), Chase(11), and twins Cade and Canon(8). In my free time, my family and I enjoy camping, bmx, atvs, baseball, basketball, date nights, and hanging with friends.
My Hope for Peine Ridge Church
I hope people will be attracted to PRC, because of the foundation that has supported us not seeing us as the flashiest or hippest church. I hope they will see a church supported by God’s holy words, the Scripture. I hope our children and grandchildren will become covenant members, as PRC continues to preach the Word in and out of season. I hope God continues to show us His undeserved grace.
