Dug McAlpineISM Associate Mission Director

It was within a few weeks of starting to attend Texas Tech University that another student knocked on Dug’s door and ask him if he wanted to be in a Bible study. That Bible study was Dug’s introduction to The Navigators. Dug continued to be involved with them on campus, being discipled and discipling other students. After graduating and teaching school for several years, Dug joined Navigator staff and ended up at Oklahoma State for his staff training.

At Oklahoma State, he was asked to lead a Bible study of several international students who had been involved with The Navigators in their home countries. It was through this study that God opened Dug's, and his wife Cherie's, eyes as to how God could use them to reach the world through international students. Since then, Dug has returned to Texas Tech University and continues to invest in international students on campus.

“I get excited when I think about these students returning home as discipled laborers, ready to take the Gospel of Jesus into their home country through relationships with friends, family and co-workers.”
