About Doug and Pam Nuenke

Doug and Pam currently serve in Colorado Springs where Doug is The Navigators U.S. President. They are deeply grateful for your prayers and financial support.

For those of you who may not know them very well, here is some information about them and the ministry the Lord has given them through The Navigators.

Doug and Pam have three adult children, two sons-in-law, and six adorable grandchildren. They enjoy spending time with others as they build relationships and see God transform lives. Doug loves to fly fish and mountain bike and they both enjoy reading, the outdoors, spending time with their family, and being with friends.

They came on staff in 1992 after serving on the staff of a local Denver church and in leadership with Doulos Ministries. During their years with the Navigators, they served at the University of Kansas and helped create and then directed EDGE Corps. Doug served on the leadership team of the Collegiate Ministry and later served as national director of Metro Mission. Doug was selected as the U.S. President of The Navigators in 2008. Pam leads, as well, mentoring women and traveling the country and world with Doug to meet with staff, donors, and friends of the organization.

As The Navigators U.S. President, Doug oversees the strategic work of the National Leadership Team and serves under the guidance of the U.S. Navigator Board of Directors. He leads with faith, trusting God in matters of oversight and caring for the hearts of Navigator staff and volunteers. Doug is committed to serve the purposes of God in The Navigators for His glory. He longs to lead as David is described in Psalm 78:72, “And David shepherded them with integrity of heart, with skillful hands he led them.”

Doug and Pam have a high value for partnering together in ministry and discipling individuals who will in turn disciple others (See 2 Timothy 2:1-2 and more thoughts on Doug’s blog, Your Disciplemaking Coach). They long to see the Gospel of Jesus advanced into the nations through everyday people who make disciples. They love how God opens doors for new friendships that provide opportunities to love people and reflect Jesus in the normal pathways of life—where they live, work and play.
