Our Pastor

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."
