Dwayne joined the staff at Manley in 2007 after 26 years in the field of education. He and his wife, Dolores, have been members at Manley since 1987. He serves the church as our Pastor of Discipleship, although he initially served Manley as the Children's Pastor and more recently as our Executive Pastor. He and Dolores have two children, Laura and Brett. Brett, and his wife, Lane, have two young daughters, Julia and Annie.
He was saved at a revival service led by a Godly minister (who would later become his father-in-law) when he was 15 years old and still holds to the words in Jeremiah 29:11-13 "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
His favorite place on earth is anywhere his family is gathered. A close second would be the Seven Pools in Maui. When he is not at Manley, you can usually find him running at Panther Creek Park, reading a great book or hiking trails in some remote part of the world.
