Doyle Peyton    Vocational Elder / Associate Pastor   Oversight    Preaching, Pastoral Care, Leadership Mentoring  Janie and I have been in ministry since 1974. Our work began in Indiana when I was still single. We were both born and raised in Mansfield. Westwood was Jane'shome church and First Alliance was mine. I attended Fort Wayne Bible college (Taylor University later) and Huntington College for some grad study. Westwood is our fifth church. We have been here for over 22 years. I have had the privilege of marrying and dedicating the children of those I first knew as children.  My great love has always been the study of God's Word. I have continued to read 2 or 3 books a week for most of my ministry. I have also enjoyed preaching through many books of the Bible both Old and New Testament. I have also watched with interest the church's response to a changing culture. My desire as I enter the golden years of my life is to faithfully apply God's word to a new generation facing the challenges of a post-Christian culture, what Francis Schaeffer called "Death in the City".
