Doug Routledge



Doug Routledge founded Crossroads Farm with his wife Dawn in the Spring of 1999. It is his heart, his mind-share and his passion. He considers himself a lifetime youth worker. He has spoken across the country to colleges, churches, festivals, conferences, civic organizations and camps. He is perhaps best known for his slightly sideways take on stories we have heard forever.

Doug is a published illustrator and author of an award winning children’s book, Waking The World, as well as the ARMS Training, Servant Leadership Series. His greatest joy is to equip youth workers for the ministry to rural teenagers. His love for kids and God’s Word come together in everything that he does.

When he is not directing Crossroads Farm, he enjoys all sports (a multiple sport college athlete), hunting the illusive Michigan Whitetail, reading (his library is home to over 3000 volumes), playing guitar, harmonica or riding his bike. He considers it as his favorite role in life as husband to a beautiful wife and father to three incredible daughters, Madison, Raegan and Lauren.

Don’t ask him for his favorite color, food, musical artist, book or movie. He can’t decide. He did decide that the verse that he claims as his is 2 Thessalonians 1:11,12.

“With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith. We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

I am passionate for Jesus Christ and desire, in fact beg Him, to use Doug and I every day that we live, with all that we have, for the rest of our lives. Reaching rural youth for Christ, through the vehicle of Crossroads Farm, is the outpouring that I share with my luscious husband of 24 years.  Our three most lovely daughters, Madison (21), Raegan (18) and Lauren (16) are the joy we are watching God unfold as they pursue a life lived for Him.  

This Crossroads Farm calling and journey...yeah, I'm more of a destination girl.  It's been ever so much harder than we anticipated in our wild faith founding 18 year ago.  My favorite words in the Bible, "Yet" and "But God."  There is exceedingly, abundantly more than we could ask or think both behind and before us in this ministry.  I am humbled by all that God has and will allow us to see, and pray toward all the things we won't see on this side of heaven.
