Elder Doug BuchananDoug Buchanan

Doug Buchanan is a superb Adult Bible Study teacher and often would fill the pulpit at Anchored in Faith Gospel Church.  Doug first met Pastor John Honn at the funeral for his Mother-In-Law.  His first impression of Pastor Honn was unfavorable.  However, one thing grew into another.  Doug ended up with a deep respect for the Biblical knowledge that Pastor Honn possessed.  They later found out that they each served in the Army Reserve at roughly the same time but in neighboring units.

Elder Doug’s wife Tanna would occasionally assist with social events as well as the children’s ministry of Anchored in Faith Gospel Church.
