I have managed construction projects, budgets, diverse teams, and fundraising events, with a record of accomplishment of reducing costs, building strong teams, and boosting performance and revenues.
Bringing people together is where I excel! I have walked into more than one highly charged environment where people were divided and morale was low. I listen, I talk, I encourage, I get people talking to one another, and I model openness and collaboration. The result has been teamwork and organizational growth.
In today’s fast-paced and ever changing business environment, the ability to communicate with people at all levels is more important than it has ever been. I have consistently demonstrated strong and presentation skills.
I always give 100%. I know everyone says that, but my work ethic is such that I take my job very seriously and give it all I’ve got. I have worked for a water company, a retail chain, and several churches, and I have always done whatever was needed to improve processes, resolve problems, and get the job done right.
Every employer has expectations of their personnel in terms of performance and attitude. I promise you that I will exceed your expectations and prove to be a hard working, positive, and fast-learning employee. If you give me a chance, you won’t be disappointed.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you, please call me if you have any questions. I would also like to speak with you about your church. Therefore let me know a good time to get intouch with you.

Love In Christ
Rev. Duane Surels

BRIEF TESTIMONY
I grew up in the church in Moneta, Va. At the age of 17 I met my wife and was married 17 June 1995. We have two children together and for the first 10 years of our marriage and family we did not have any care for God, His word, or attending church and we lived our lives as if He didn’t even exist. However, at 31 years of age, while deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, God called me out of a life of sin and in September of 2008 I received Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Saviour.

It was following my return home from Iraq that I became an active part of the local church body at Crystal Hills Free Will Baptist Church teaching Sunday school and then later asked to lead the Wednesday night prayer meeting and Bible study every week. There God began to mold me and it was there that God called me to preach the Gospel and gave me the heart to pastor. There, in May 2010, I preached my first message and then began to fill in for the pastor as needed and sometimes just at his request. On 9 March 2011 I was licensed by Crystal Hills Free Will Baptist Church to preach the gospel message. I then began to struggle with whether or not I should get out of the Army with 15 years of service to pursue this calling or to wait and the Lord led me to wait and get my degree so that I would be better prepared.

Shortly after this, April 2011, we received orders to move to Fort Eustis, VA (Newport News) and their the Lord led us to Calvary Free Will Baptist Church where my family and I meet one of the godliest men who became our pastor and I began to observe him and quickly learn what it meant to be a pastor and work in the ministry. This brother in Christ was a pastor’s pastor and I mimicked his leadership until I grew to the point where I nailed down my own biblical convictions.

From there we attended Grace Bible Church (Independent Baptist Doctrine) in Gloucester, VA and worked in their ministry for a year and a half and then, by way of the US Army, the Lord moved us to Fort Bragg, NC were we are currently members of Zion Christian Church (Independent Baptist Doctrine) and serve the local church. This is a brief testimony of my life and ministering for the Lord.

Salvation Story:
I was born December of 1985, my parents met Jesus in 1989. Through the changes that God was able to do through them gave me the faith at a young age to accept Jesus into my heart October of 1993 at the First Baptist Church in Vacaville, CA.

Personal Life:
I am 28 years old currently, and I was married December 17th 2005 at age 20 to my wife Shalane (27) who was the Worship Leader at our previous church. We have three children Darren, Rebecca, and Krysta. We have one dog, and four cats. We are close to our family, and our in-laws all get along. I enjoy camping, taking trips with the family, photography, and playing with my children.

Non-Ministry Profession:
I currently am a Custodian at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory since November 2013.

Calling:
I don’t remember the exact date, but I know I was sixteen at the time God put in my heart the desire to preach the Gospel. I was attending Fairfield Free Will Baptist which at the time which facilitated a private school. I remember during lunch time going into the sanctuary standing behind the pulpit asking God if preaching was what He wanted me to do. I didn’t walk away with an answer that day but felt confident in my heart that it’s what God wanted me to do. God confirmed this calling the following Sunday morning, when my pastor Sam Hensley preached on God’s calling on people’s lives. From that moment on, I pursued preaching and teaching.

Ministry Experience:
As a teenager I:
– Spoke during Youth Group
– School chapel
– Student Retreat
– Youth Camp
– Taught Sunday School
– Participated in a Mission Trip to Japan in 2003
– Very active in youth group activities.
– Preached at other Churches

As an Adult:
– Worked in the youth ministry under leadership in Concord Grace Free Will Baptist Church.
– Became youth leader at the Fairfield Free Will Baptist 2007
– I served several volunteer positions at Grace Free Will Baptist Church 2008 to June 2014. Which include Youth Leader, Webmaster, Janitor, Created bulletins, and other promotional materials for events. Worked in the sound and media ministry working the computer PowerPoints, and sound board.
– In 2009 I was voted by the Free Will Baptist Golden Gate Association to be on the Youth Ministries Board for the Free Will Baptist State Association, which then, I was voted to be Chairman of the Youth Ministries Board. I held that position on the board until 2013. I remained on the board until June of 2014.
– In September 2014, my wife and I began a Bible study which we currently hold in our home.
Here’s What You Need to Know:
There is no doubt in my mind that God has called me to the ministry in the local church. God has never let us let go of that desire. Despite seasons of rebellion, which we all have, He has never let me go too far away. I found myself always serving somewhere in some way. I along with my wife, love to see people become changed because of God’s forgiveness. It is our desire to be part of what God is doing through the local church. We want to see people far from God meet Jesus, saved people get grown up, and be part of a church that is known for how they serve.
God has given me a heart to lead, preach, and teach. I love it when people look at scripture explained ad have that “ah-ha” moment when they understand what it means and acknowledge the impact it would have if applied to their life, relationships, family, and church. I want to be where God leads us, and want to see God move in that place so that it continues to be the beacon of hope that Jesus intended the local church to be.
I come from a Free Will Baptist background, so I agree with its Constitution and Bylaws. I preach from various Bible versions, (KJV, NIV, ESV, NLT). I like to teach through the Bible, and preach topical sermon series’.
