Grace to Change Ministries was founded in September 2020, by Dave Douglass. Dave was born and reared in the Columbia Gorge National Scenic area in Washington State. During his senior year of high school, searching for direction, he enlisted in the United States Army. After spending two years of duty in Germany, he was transferred to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, where at the age of 20 he came to know Christ as his Saviour. Upon completing four years of enlistment, he enrolled in Bible college where he received a degree in Pastoral Theology and met his wife, Tina.
Dave has continually served full time in a variety of ministry positions since 1987. He has served as a pastor, assistant pastor, principal of a Christian school for inner-city Chicago children, and president of a Bible college.
In 2010, after hundreds of hours of learning in the areas of Biblical counseling, he received a Biblical counseling certificate from LEAD Ministries in Greenville, South Carolina. He has counseled thousands of hurting people in his years of ministry. Dave was well acquainted with the depths of sin before his salvation experience in 1980. This is one of the reasons he has been so passionate to help those in spiritual need and those in bondage to sin.
Dave and his wife Tina have been married since 1984. They reside in Schererville, Indiana, and have 3 adult married children and 5 grandchildren.
