Serving in Indonesia, Asia Pacific


Doug does Leadership Training and Development in Indonesia. He studied at Wichita State University, Central Bible College, Evangel University, and Fuller Theological Seminary. He has done practical ministry and leadership training with Hispanics, Vietnamese, Dutch, and Indonesian peoples. His heart is to reach the “Never Reached” at any cost and to give an opportunity to the "forgotten" peoples of the world. 

Doug Hollis first visited Indonesia in 1996 and God confirmed a call to this island nation. Indonesia has 17,000+ islands and is the largest Muslim nation in the world. Today Doug is focused on attempting to bring “Transformation in a Generation” to the island of Sumba. He is the advisor/mentor to the newly formed Sumba Assemblies of God district in Sumba, Indonesia and directs/advises the Sumba “House of Hope” (Uma Monungu), a youth discipleship complex which is home to 40 young people and center for 300+ youth involved in sports, music, business and English training. 

 

His ministry also involves community development through water pumps, water tanks, medical outreach, and education scholarships for elementary, jr high and high school students as well as micro-enterprise development. He offers finance training seminars and small business training for church planters and leaders. He also shares his life with people from various religious backgrounds and opens the door for them to experience Christ’s presence in unique and yet natural ways.
