What first inspired you to get into your line of work? And what motivates you to do the work you do still today?
Grove Overhead Door started as a dream for Doug who was fresh out of High School. He worked several years for a garage door company in Newark, OH. He spent about 10 years working in a factory but decided to return to the garage door industry in 1996. Grove Overhead Door, LLC was born 13 years later out of his garage and has been going strong since.
How did you come to faith in Christ?
That’s a funny story. My wife had recently run into a high school classmate at a new church she’d started attending. The friend and her started talking a lot and then I started attending as well. Several months later I attended my first baptism celebration and asked the friend a silly yet sincere question. I asked if they got a prize every time they helped a person get saved….which was met with the answer, “Yep, we get a toaster.” So when I accepted Christ, of course I surprised him with a toaster!
How does your faith impact the way you do business?
We live by Matthew 7:12, “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. ” We totally believe that you reap what you sow.
What ministry/cause do you champion and why?
There are two. The first is Total Health, based in Lewis Center (https://totalhealth.org, https://youtu.be/-SbJDLZHZCE). The second one is King’s Ransom Foundation (https://kingsransomfoundation.org) out of Texas. Both organizations focus on serving the extreme poor in Central America, sending volunteers and supplies for much needed basic medical care, dental care, food, water, building homes and rescuing kids out of the sex trade. The one closest to our heart is Total Health who partners with Iglesia Gran Comision in La Ceiba, Honduras. We sponsor a little girl named Margarita, so she can attend an after school children’s center at the church where she’ll get to play, learn about God and get a hot meal each day. My wife has gone on 2 mission trips to serve in La Ceiba and her life has been forever changed by what she saw/experienced there.
