Doug Estes became the pastor of Buffalo Baptist Church in July of 2019. He has served in various roles in southern Baptist churches in Georgia and South Carolina since 1997. His central passion for ministry revolves around encouraging and challenging Christians to grow to their full spiritual potential through the preaching of God’s Word, evangelism, and making disciples. (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 3:18, II Timothy 2:2, Matt. 28:19-20). He preaches in the discipline of text-driven expository preaching. Expository text-driven preaching is a form of preaching that details the meaning of a particular text or passage of Scripture. It explains what the Bible means by what it says—a careful drawing out of the exact meaning of a passage in its original context. He is committed to evangelism of the community and world, making disciples who make further disciples.

Doug has a Master’s degree from Luther Rice Seminary in Loganville, Georgia.

He is married to his best friend and partner in ministry, Joy Estes. In his free time, he enjoys reading, playing golf, hunting, preaching, and enjoying a good meal.
