Steve is a very effective communicator to youth and adults motivating them to be involved in missions. Steve and Rose have served on the board of VidaNet since November of 2006.

Doug’s organizational ability and knowledge of organizational procedure come in as a great asset to VidaNet. However, when there is a break or free time during board meeting, Doug is usually found having his own “board” meeting (surf board)! Doug has been on the VidaNet board since March of 2009.
