doug_portrait.jpg (12446 bytes)Mr. Whitley grew up in eastern North Carolina. At the age of four he came in childlike faith to Jesus Christ. He dedicated his life to Christ while on a church camp-out at the age of eleven. Doug spent three summers on staff at a Christian camp. He traveled to Mexico twice on short-term mission trips. Doug has worked at a youth sponsor to both Junior and Senior High young people. He has coached state championship soccer teams and conference championship teams on the college level and took one team to the finals on the national level.

Doug's experience with Christian drama began in high school when he traveled for three years with a Christian drama team. It was during this time that the impact of drama became evident in its ability to reach souls and change hearts as he witnessed its effect on congregations. Mr. Whitley holds a B.A. in speech and a M.A. in dramatic production. He has been a college speech department chairman and director of special programs for Southside Christian School. He has appeared in three Christian films, various TV and radio programs. His acting credits include many Shakespearean roles as well as Biblical roles. Mr. Whitley is the author of eight Christian plays and co-authored an Easter Cantata.

Doug began his present ministry in August of 1990 after breaking his arms while wiring a friend's barn. It was during this time that God strengthened his faith to begin this full time drama ministry. Doug, his wife Cheri, their sons Doug III and Charles, and their daughter Blythe Eryn travel together trusting the Lord to meet their needs. The ministry has taken the Whitleys from coast to coast, North to South and around the world.
