Duncan has been married to Cynthia since 1988, and they have three young adult children who continue to be the greatest sources of pride in Duncan's life.  Duncan's personal call is to make God known.  He seeks to live out that call through Biblical preaching that points people to God's unique intervention in this world in Jesus.
