Dustin Dougherty: 

My name is Dustin Dougherty. I am an evangelist laboring with the local congregation in Beloit, Kansas.  In addition, I also hold a secular job and serve as a martial arts instructor. I grew up in the little town of Agra, Kansas, and attended the church of Christ there throughout my childhood.  After being baptized in 2001, I have assisted the congregation in different capacities. I moved to Beloit for technical college in 2002, completed my courses, got married, and stayed. As a congregation, we watched the Back to the Bible course with the accompanying application videos during our mid-week services in late spring of 2020. I realized that using this approach and curriculum would help us reach the lost. Since implementing this program, we have developed a more evangelistic mindset. As a result, we have had more conversions in the past three years than the previous two decades combined. One of these conversions is my beloved wife. In 2022, I graduated from the basic and advanced levels of the House to House/Heart to Heart School of Evangelism. I am also studying via World Video Bible School to expand my Bible knowledge as a formal student.

John Garza:

I am a graduate of the Southwest School of Bible Studies (Class of 2013) and a 2022 graduate of the House to House School of Evangelism. I am married to my beautiful wife of five years, Rachel Garza, and we have a year-old toddler, Jack Garza. In 2014, I began preaching for small congregations that could not afford a full-time preacher. My first full-time work was in 2018 with the Johnson City Church of Christ. In 2022, I accepted the position as an associate at Southwest, with an emphasis on evangelism. Since then, we have had over 40 baptisms. It has been a great pleasure working with the members of the congregation in evangelism. In fact, it has been exciting to see many souls obey the gospel of Christ. It has been even more thrilling to see the enthusiasm and dedication of so many new soul-winners. For this reason, I am honored to train the saved to teach the lost.
