Leaders of Milan  Baptist Church


Doug & Lisa Strader

Senior Pastor

Doug has been the Senior Pastor at MBC since August of 2008. He came to us with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biblical Studies from Grace College and Seminary, Winona Lake, Indiana, and a Master's of Biblical Studies Degree from Gulf Shore Baptist Seminary, Fort Myers, Florida. Doug and Lisa were married in 1980 and have had the privilege of serving the Lord together in ministry for over 40 years in churches in South Florida and Southeast Michigan. They have two grown children and seven grandchildren. Doug is very passionate about his relationship with Christ and the ministry he has been called to lead. He loves to spend time with Lisa and their grandkids, play golf, and watch as many college basketball games as he can during "March Madness." One of his favorite scripture passages is Ephesians 3:20-21: "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."

"Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; .... the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness."

Romans 12:6-8  ESV
