Doug Sommer

Your role at Calvary: 

Senior Pastor


Hometown: 

Difficult to say as I moved 13 times before I was in 6th grade. I’d probably settle on West Seattle as my hometown.


Family: 

Dacyl and I have three wonderful children: Faith, Keilah, Christian.


Year began attending Calvary Monroe: 

Conception (Official May 11th, 2008)


What is the best part about your role? 

There are many aspects I love about what God has called me to, but to watch people fall in love with His Word and learn to apply it appropriately to their lives in every way, is very satisfying. 


Top 5 Books: 

Haggai, Hebrews, Knowing God (Packer), Mere Christianity (Lewis), Pursuit of God / Pursuit of Man (Tozer)


Life Verse(s): 

How do you encapsulate life with God in just one verse? The fullness of God’s Word give us everything we need pertaining to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:2).  


Favorite Phone App: 

Sermon Index (and my White Noise app so I can sleep!)


Favorite food: 

Oh man, this is such an important question. I love food! I need to get it just right. BACON!


What makes you laugh? 

Mostly, I love random humor in move flavors (most). 


Favorite TV show or movie: 

There is no better show ever created than M*A*S*H* (probably dates me). Also enjoyed Fringe and Leverage.


Favorite place on earth: 

Home with my wife. There’s no better place.


Place you'd like to travel to:

I would love to travel to Tahiti and stay in one of those over the water bungalows (without having to fly)


A secret talent that you posses: 

I have no real talent outside of being able to wiggle my ears (together and independently).
