About

Fall 2014Your Consultant:
Dr. Douglas Paul Pruiett, Sr.

After 16 years as an aerospace engineer, seven years as a missionary and pastor, and eleven years as an AVP of Information Technology, the Lord has opened the opportunity for me to serve as a technical and ministry consultant to Christian non-profits and secular companies.  My years in the fast-paced missile design, test, and launch environment, combined with my experience leading the efforts of ministers and volunteers to meet the spiritual needs of inmates and staff in penal institutions, and handling the technology needs and initiatives of an international mission organization have provided a unique skill set that can be used to further the mission of a broad range of organizations.  My experience as a community organizer and lobbyist also add a dimension to my services in the area of communicating vision and raising support for initiatives.
