Doug has been in ministry since 2001 since he helped plant a church downtown in the city of Pittsburgh, PA. Feeling a call to reach teenagers with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and help them grow into disciples who make other disciples before they graduate high school, Doug has been working in Youth and Family Ministry ever since. Doug is a published Youth Ministry Curriculum Author and National Conference and Retreat Communicator with a passion to help Teens, their Families, and Youth Ministry Workers WIN. Doug is one of the Founders and Directors of Pittsburgh Youth Worker. Pittsburgh Youth Worker connects, trains, and networks Youth Workers, Churches, and Parachurch Organizations in the Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania Region. Each year, we host The Pittsburgh Youth Workers Conference in October; bringing in nationally known Youth Ministry Communicators to team up with local breakout speakers to train and equip youth workers and youth ministry college students in the Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania Region. Doug is presently the Pastor to High School Students at Christ Church at Grove Farm just north of the city of Pittsburgh. He loves Jesus, loves Comic Books and Movies, and is Married with Twin Girls. If you are looking for a Youth Ministry Coach or a Communicator for your next event, Doug would love to help! CONTACT DOUG RARAIGH HERE.
Though he will protest, Duffy Robbins is the God-father of youth ministry. If he makes you an offer, you can't refuse it! But really, he's a prolific youth ministry author, college professor, highly sought after camp and conference speaker, and one of the most down to earth guys you'll ever meet. Duffy currently is the Ministry Department Chair at Grove City College and is one of the directors of Pittsburgh Youth Worker.
