Our Leadership Team

Our mission here at RVCC is to “Harvest fully devoted followers of Christ” and we believe that mean putting the right people in place to disciple and lead people to Jesus Christ. Below are the staff and ministry leaders that God has placed at this church to carry out that mission.


Pastor John Douglas and wife Sue Douglas

Pastor John and his wife Sue have been in ministry for many years disciplining believers to take that next step. Starting out in ministry in a small town in south-eastern Ohio where they helped start Fellowship Church of the Nazarene. Many years later they took the call to come to RVCC and continue the work God had called them to do. During this process they were also involved in other things such as preaching revivals and singing in southern gospel groups with the Harvest Trio and Dayspring. God has blessed their ministries and has blessed RVCC with the best pastor and wife duo a church could ever ask for.
