Doug White – Associate Pastor
Worship & Music
Ministry Role & Responsibility:
To lead/engage people in using and developing the musical gifts and talents God has given us to lead people into His presence to exalt and honor Him. In addition, we are training up the next generation of worship leaders. We also strive to be an Acts 1:8 music ministry by being a visible and vocal witness locally and to the world through music.
I have had the wonderful blessing of serving the Lord with the SABC forever family since 2003. My wife Sheila, daughter Cynthia & husband Tai and son Joshua & wife Missy all love the Lord and this church family and faithfully serve with me in music and in numerous other church ministries. Sheila & I were both born in Lake Wales, Florida and I began serving in our first church there. We have now served in churches in Ft. Worth, Texas, Miami, Gainesville and Panama City. I attended and graduated from The University of South Florida in Tampa with a BA in Music Ed and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Masters in Church Music.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.
I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ in me; and the life which I now live I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
I’ve had the privilege to do music & ministry work in over 10 countries and concerts in Carnegie Hall and the Sydney Opera House.
I have a tremendous love for pecan pie but I’d starve without Chic-fil-a!
