Since 2005, Douglas Argue has served as the managing director for the Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio. In this role, his main responsibilities include advocating and providing technical assistance for safe, decent, and affordable housing for low-income and special needs populations across the state of Ohio.
Deacon Argue was ordained to the diaconate in 2008 and is convenor of deacons for the Episcopal Diocese Southern Ohio. Along with providing spiritual direction through the Cathedral Center for Spirituality, he serves the congregation of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Westerville, Ohio, as deacon.
Deacon Argue earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Evansville in Evansville, Indiana. He holds a Master of Social Work degree from Indiana University and is a licensed independent social worker (LISW) in the state of Ohio.
While the spiritual journey takes many forms and has many paths, Deacon Argue feels particularly called to explore the areas of men’s spirituality, sexual minority spirituality, discernment for the ministry, and the mystical traditions. He finds meditation on images and icons serves as a doorway to the Divine.
He lives in Columbus with his husband and their two four-legged children.
