Rev. Doug Jolly has been the Senior Pastor of South Brookley UMC since the summer of 2007. He grew up the son of an Air Force pilot, was born overseas in West Germany, and has traveled and lived in a lot of different places, but feels very “at home” on the Gulf Coast. Doug received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Intercultural Studies from Asbury University, a Master of Divinity degree from Asbury Theological Seminary, and has been serving as an ordained pastor in the United Methodist Church for 20 years. He is a “tentmaking” (bi-vocational) pastor who works two extra jobs to avoid being a financial burden on the church. He and his wife Bethany have been married for 25 years, and they have two adult children – Rebecca, who lives and works in Fredericksburg, VA with her husband Jon, and Michael who lives at home and is an electricial apprentice. In what little spare time he has, Doug enjoys reading, playing guitar and drums, running, biking, and being outdoors. He will answer to “Reverend Doug”, “Pastor Doug” and “Brother Doug”, but really prefers it when you just call him “Doug”!
