Dougald's guiding principle in working with member churches is based on a statement made by a denominational leader 20+ years ago as he was sensing God's call into Associational Missions. That statement is, "Any two people genuinely seeking God can work together." Believing this, his heart's desire is to see churches, working together to impact lostness in this generation.
