Doug Brushell, 57, of Clay, entered into the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Doug was a devoted husband and father, yet his greatest title was "papa" to his six grandchildren. In the Late 1970's Doug was part of the Syracuse music scene. He was involved in the management team of the Todd Hobin Band and was a performer himself. In the mid- 1980's he turned his life to Christ and directed his passion for music to the Kingdom of God. He then founded a company called HIS ministries, where he worked with many national Christian artists. All of this work led to his co-founding of Kingdom Bound ministries. Doug was on staff at Believer's Chapel Cicero as a worship leader and singles pastor. He then took a brief sabbatical from pastor ship to further his ministry and attend Portland Bile Collage, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude. After returning, he founded Believer's Chapel of Canastota, where he was senior pastor until his passing.
