Donald was ordained into the ministry on May 3, 1959 and served as the Associate Minister at his home congregation for seven years. Dorothy was the pre-school/kindergarten Sunday School teacher at that same congregation. Donald and Dorothy were married in June 1962 in Inglewood, California, and have a daughter, a son, and two adult grandsons. Together they have served congregations in Inglewood, California; Hutchinson, Kansas; Fort Morgan, Colorado; North Platte, Nebraska; Garibaldi, Oregon; Oskaloosa, Iowa and since August 1998 they have served the Antioch Christian Church in Pittsburg, Missouri.

Most of the churches they have served were either a mission type of work which needed rebuilding or a part-time church which has necessitated Donald being bi-vocational. This has included driving school bus (20+ years), owning two retail food service businesses, insurance sales and various other jobs as needed. Donald has a history of public service and civic involvement in the places they have lived. This has included being a volunteer sheriff/police chaplain, leadership in school organizations, holding office in local and regional Lions Club organizations, leader and chaplain for local Boy Scout troops, an elected City Councilor, and leadership in local ministerial fellowship groups.
