Bro. Doug Hamblin – Youth Pastor

Doug joined Zion’s Pastoral Team on January 1, 2004, and has seen God use Zion in incredible ways, during that time. He and his wonderful wife, Kim, have been married for 25 years, and together they have 2 incredible children – Meika and Noah. Meika will soon graduate from college, and Noah is an awesome student at Henderson County High. Doug is a graduate of the University of Kentucky (Go Cats!) and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY, and is currently working on a Doctor of Theology.   He has been in full time ministry for over 18 years serving in the state of Kentucky.  

Doug’s passion is seeing people have a personal relationship with Jesus and growing in that relationship. He loves helping students see all that relationship is, and encouraging them while they navigate that relationship in life.  When he is not leading in ministry, you will find him teaching himself how to play guitar and ukulele (he’s played drums since the 8th grade), spending time with his wife and family, or drinking coffee – Starbucks is known as his second home. 

“Student Ministry is NOT the church’s ministry to students; Student Ministry is the students’ ministry to the world.”

“Don’t just give students leadership tasks; give them leadership responsibilities.”
