Chaplain Doug Keefauver
I served in the US Army 1966-1971. In 1967 I deployed with the Alpha Company 2/501st 101st Airborne Division to Vietnam as a infantry soldier. I achieved the rank of Staff Sergeant while in Vietnam in 1969. I was wounded in Dec. 1967 and April 1968 for which I received Purple Hearts for those wounds. I left the Army in March of 1971.
In 1987 I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ after a long battle with drugs. Since 1987 I have served in ministry as a Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor, Missions Director and Prison Chaplain, as well as preached the gospel in the Philippines, Indonesia, China, Mexico, and West Africa. My wife and I have lead, and trained hundreds of short term missionaries over the past 25 years. I am currently ordained with Abundant life Fellowship in Roseville, CA a non-denominational church, and I am a chaplain for several Veterans organizations. I proudly ride with the Patriot Guard Riders (PGR) when ever I can; to honor our fallen hero’s.
In 2010 I was compelled to begin working with needy veterans and their families and began Veterans for Jesus our membership is growing almost daily. I will remain devoted to this task until the Lord tells me otherwise or calls me home.
God Bless you all, and welcome home
