What brings a powerful and successful man in the corporate world into the world of disability ministry? For Doug Mazza, it was a calling of God to serve families like his—families with loved ones affected by disability. Today, Doug serves as the president and chief operating offer of “Joni and Friends” and has done so for fourteen years, helping us expand our outreach for Christ around the world to some of the neediest people with disabilities. Curious to learn more about Doug? Watch this short video clip introducing Doug Mazza.

I was feeling very low today. That's when I heard this episode of Joni and Friends. I was encouraged to come and see this video. I should admit that Doug- the things that you do as a president is unimaginable. I mean, I can't imagine any Presidents that I know coming down to that level- "A chief serving officer". God bless you Doug! Even I work in a corporate world and your story inspires me to move out into something like this. I hope that my Lord will show the way.
