Aaron and Brittany Douglas
Hello, my name is Aaron. I got saved when I was 21 years old, but the events leading me to my salvation were anything but easy. During my time in the military, I was dealing with depression and it got to the point where I found myself attempting suicide. Whether it was cowardice or the grace of God, I did not go through with it. As I was working through those difficult times, God introduced me to a woman, Brittany, who would bring me into a church that quickly became my family. Brittany became my wife and we have been married for over 6 years now and have a beautiful son named Bruce. I’m in song service and now I was recently appointed as the Children’s church leader. To be able to praise God and teach the next generation about him is nothing short of a privilege and blessing.
Hello I’m Brittany. I was raised in church, but that didn’t mean I was a Christian. In the summer of 2014 I rededicated my life to Jesus and started to truly live for Him. I was always asked to help in the nursery, but I had not had much experience with kids. However, God started to work in my heart as I had my miracle son Bruce and I went from a helper in the nursery to the leader.
worship team leader
I got saved at the age of 16, going into my junior year of High School. I was raised in church, but still lived the life that I wanted to live. I didn’t live for God, but to please my flesh. At the age of 16, I rededicated my life to God and started making a conscious effort to live for God. He set me free from all my sin and made me a new person. Once I started living for God, I quickly began to see God's grace and favor, elevating me to positions I didn’t think I would be in. I started playing the drums for song service and not too long after that I was asked to lead the worship team. I love the song service, I believe it sets the dynamic for the rest of the service.
Sound Ministry Leader & Head Usher
I grew up here in San Angelo. This place is my home. I got saved when I was 16 years old after someone invited me to church at my high school. Being in the position I was at the time I figured, “what else could I have to lose?” It turned out to be the best decision of my life. Prior to my salvation, I grew up in a broken home with a broken family. After getting into various types of drugs to help me cope with the trauma I faced growing up, my decisions not only led me to a place of addiction, but also landed me in jail with multiple charges. No matter what I did on my own I was not able to satisfy that thing inside me that longed for happiness and purpose. This also came with many mental health issues, as I am sure you could imagine. Through my salvation this has now all changed. That longing for a purpose or a sense of self worth was totally fulfilled in not only me but multiple members of my family as well. I was delivered from addiction, my mind was healed and my family’s generational curses were broken. I aim to help and lead others to God just as someone else once did for me.
My name is Alyssa and I got saved when I was 22 years old. I have always believed in God and I even grew up going to church, however, I would say my life was a complete mess before my salvation. I was always out partying, driving while drinking, and some nights I couldn't even remember how I got home. I was just living in sin. Even though I knew the way I was living was not right, I struggled to live the way I knew Jesus wanted me to until I joined The Door Church. My life after salvation has been amazing! God has opened so many new doors for me and has blessed me beyond measure. It amazes me what amazing things God can do in your life when you love Him and live according to his word!
My name is Kathy Colern and I got saved 16 years ago at the age of 22. I was raised in a good Christian home with both of my parents, but that didn’t keep me from making poor decisions in my life. When I was 14, I started dating a guy who slowly introduced me to drugs and alcohol. At the age of 16, I ended pregnant with my son. I decided that it was best to leave my son’s dad because I didn’t want to raise my son around the drugs and that lifestyle. Things were good for a while but when I turned 21, I wanted to “live” a little. So, I started clubbing and drinking with my friends. I met a guy that was a little bit older than me. He kept pushing me to get married but I knew he was not the one. My son and I left our hometown of El Paso, TX to get away from that relationship. God got a hold of me in San Antonio, TX exactly 1 week after arriving. Six months later, I was at a bible study and a guy I had never met walked in. Little did I know, one year and a half later, I would call him my husband. Jeffrey and I have been married for almost 15 years and we have a daughter named, Sophia. God redeemed me the day I gave my life to Him. I never looked back!

Hello my name is Robert. Born and raised in Lubbock TX. When I was around the age of 5, my mom and dad decided to move to the Dallas Fort Worth, Arlington area. While living there my family got saved and gave their life to Christ. However, I did not give my life to Christ until the age of 15. When traveling to Lubbock TX to attend the Las Vegas New Mexico Bible Bootcamp, with the Lubbock Church, is where Jesus would change my life FOREVER! I remember telling God He would not be able save me and that I couldn’t be helped. Before that Bootcamp was over I bowed my knee to Christ and went back to Arlington a new man. God has delievered me from hatred, bitterness, resentment, and perversion. Eventually I got into the military, and got sent to San Angelo where I now attend The Door Church and at that time I had never heard of San Angelo but being here I have had the time of my life and I’m very excited to be apart of what God is doing and what He will continue to do here.
Hi my name is Stephanie Gibson I gave my life to Jesus at the age of 18 years old. I grew up my whole life as a Catholic. I never had a real relationship with God, I was still living in sin going out partying and drinking. God got a hold of me during one of the darkest moments of my life. I was young and lost in the world, I prayed to God that He would help me and change me. I couldn’t continue living life the way that I was living, something needed to change. Thank God for my Husband who invited me to church. I’ve been delivered and set free. God healed me and has been helping me become the Woman of God that’s he created me to be. God has a plan and purpose for my life and that plan and purpose is so much more than what I ever could imagine. Since serving God, He has done so much for me! I just want to thank God for all he’s doing in our lives and at The Door Church here in San Angelo.
