Leadership & Staff





Duane’s father was an army chaplain, so he grew up moving around every few years.  He majored in English at Appalachian State University and taught at Millbrook High School for several years before being called to ministry.  After serving as a pastor in Philadelphia and Asheville, he has returned to Raleigh with his family to plant Renewal. He has been married to his wife Julie since 2001, and they have four children.  Duane is also an adjunct English professor at Wake Tech and serves on the board of LAMP Seminary RDU.
