Duane started his twelve-year career in healthcare developing a statewide management services organization for private and Baptist-owned practices in Central Kentucky. He then transitioned to middle TN to become CEO of a 12 doctor Orthopaedic Surgery group in Franklin, TN, where he led them to consecutive years of their highest profitability and expansion. This included the successful development of a free-standing, physician-owned surgery center. But instead of taking the next career jump when it came in 2005, Duane made the courageous decision to leave a promising healthcare career to support the growing ministry of his church. He went from health care to soul care. Duane became the Executive Pastor at Thompson Station Church. It was a fulfillment of a calling from when he was 13 years old. Over twelve years as Executive Pastor the church developed locally, launched an international missions plan, started a satellite church, and planted churches in Las Vegas and Cincinnati. More than that he developed a passion to be a disciple who makes disciples who make disciples. Discipleship started at home where he partnered with his wife, Kristen, to intentionally pour into their three children. These three children have developed their own passion for a personal relationship with Christ that includes ministering to others. All three children are pursuing business degrees with the plan to use their business as a platform for ministry. Duane sees his contribution to the mission of Christ (to reach every nation) is through discipleship in the marketplace. In this season of life, he utilizes his gifts for facilitation and insightful inquiry to spur business leaders to build great businesses for a greater purpose as a chair in C12’s Greater Nashville area.
